West London NHS Trust is one of the most diverse providers of NHS mental and physical care in the UK. We are rated 'good' by the Care Quality Commission and 'outstanding' for caring and our forensic services.
We are here to care for people with mental and physical illness, helping them to recover and go on to lead full and productive lives. We aim to be the best organisation of our kind in the country.
We provide care and treatment for children, adults and older people living in the London boroughs of Ealing, Hammersmith & Fulham and Hounslow, delivering services in the community (at home, in GP surgeries, care homes), hospital, specialist clinics and forensic (secure) units.
Our physical healthcare services include intermediate care services in Hammersmith & Fulham as part of the Community Independence Service partnership.
Our national, specialist and forensic services include:
  • Medium secure services on the St Bernard's Hospital site in Ealing
  • Services for people with complex and severe personality disorder at the Cassel Hospital in Richmond
  • High secure services at Broadmoor Hospital in Berkshire
We are a teaching Trust with a growing research portfolio, working with academic and industry partners.
Our 3400 staff are dedicated to improving lives, working with patients, service users, carers, families and partners across the communities we serve.

An excellent opportunity has arisen for a clinical or forensic psychologist to join the Drug and Alcohol Support Service (DASS) within West London Forensic Service (WLFS). WLFS was recently rated as outstanding by the CQC. West London NHS Trust provides a broad range of forensic mental health care in adult male, female and adolescent services, across high, medium and low security settings, as well as in a community and court diversion setting. The trust provides specialist forensic mental health care across eight boroughs in North West London, in addition to high secure care.

The DASS team provides specialist assessment and intervention for forensic mental health service users with histories of substance use. You will use skills and expertise in clinical and risk assessments and management, collaboratively develop formulations, and the provision of psychological advice and consultation to others involved in service user care. The post holder will also plan, sequence and deliver individual and group interventions to service users, and will play a key role in contributing to the development and evaluation of evidence-based interventions.

You will be part of the psychological services team at West London Forensic Service (WLFS), which comprises a team of over thirty psychologists, assistant psychologists and psychological therapists. The psychology department is a well-established and supportive service with high standards of clinical supervision and excellent opportunities for continuing professional development. You will be supported to develop specialist skills in clinical areas of your interest and contribute to the development and training within the psychology team and wider service. In addition, you will have opportunities to contribute to the supervision and training of qualified, trainee and assistant psychologists.

You will be an HCPC registered Clinical or Forensic Psychologist, who is eligible for BPS Chartership. You will have significant experience working as a highly specialist clinical or forensic psychologist in a forensic mental health setting.
