Job Description

Consultant in Acute Inpatient Adult Psychiatry

Abadare, Wales

Salary - ~£130,000 - £150,000

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. There may be scope to offer part-time hours and to supplement the work at this service with work at another of the company's services in South Wales.

The post holder will work within the 24 bed Acute unit for individuals detained under the MHA or who are admitted to hospital informally. Most patients are admitted directly or have been stepped down from a PICU. Patients will generally be experiencing difficulties due to a range of conditions including bipolar disorder, psychosis, depression, personality disorder, self-harm, dual diagnosis, acute mental illness, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and others. 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.

Candidate Requirements

- All role holders must have completed their Specialist training and have a CCT/CCST

- Registration to practice with the GMC

- Specialisation accreditation in Adult/General or Forensic Psychiatry

- Excellent communication skills and ability to lead an MDT

- A desire to help other

All candidates will be subject to DBS checks and must be authorised to practice in the UK.
