We are currently assisting a growing private provider of mental health services in the recruitment of a Consultant Psychiatrist to work in a Locked Rehabilitation hospital which caters for 24 males with Acute Mental illness in Port Talbot, South Wales. The hospital has been designed to world class standards and has been succesfully operating for a number of years at near-full occupancy and with Good CQC reports. The organisation are keen to bring on a Consultant to work on a permanent, full time basis, who can not only lead the clinical staff, but also provide strategic input into the development of the service.

The aim of the unit is to rehabilitate patients for discharge directly into the community or to a community-based service.
As well as working with an established MDT the role holder will have an input in shaping the staffing and care pathways provided as the service admits more patients and establishes itself within the community.
