You will be joining a dynamic and forward-looking organisation in the heart of the capital where you can develop your career and broaden your horizons.
We think you will enjoy working for us but you don't have to take our word for it - 79% of staff who took part in the latest national NHS Staff Survey would recommend Guy's and St Thomas' as a place to work.
An exciting new opportunity has arisen in our department. We are seeking a committed senior clinical psychologist with a keen interest in chronic pain to work in the Pain Management Centre, contributing to multidisciplinary specialist clinics, offering assessment and individual psychological therapy for complex chronic pain patients.
If you are looking for a chance to be part of a well established and reputable clinical and research centre at the cutting edge of clinical health psychology we would like to hear from you. Our department is implementing a number of exciting and novel service developments (including an online pain management programme).
The Pain Management Service is a friendly unit, where psychologists are valued for the contribution they make to the multidisciplinary team; they work closely with pain consultants, clinical nurse specialists, physiotherapists and occupational therapists.
As a senior member of the team you will have specific responsibility for the individual pain management psychology service within the department. There is opportunity to supervise Band 5-7 psychologists and guide other professionals in the application of psychological models.
You would be involved in leading and delivering psychological pain management interventions based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
Our unit has strong research and training links with the Institute of Psychiatry and regularly provides placements for trainee clinical psychologists. The department plays a key role in training health professionals from varied backgrounds and frequently hosts visitors from the UK and overseas.
You will have a keen interest in psychology applied to physical health, and will ideally have some experience in working with chronic health conditions. Further training in psychological models of therapy and experience in supervision and consultation is desirable.
There is a commitment in the team to research, audit and evaluation work, and you would input into the process of audit and service development. There are seven clinical psychologists and an assistant psychologist based within the multidisciplinary unit.
You will have opportunities to link up with other psychologists working within the Trust and will be encouraged to network with members of the Faculty of Clinical Health Psychology. Regular CPD events are held within the Trust and the service. This is a well-supported position with ready access to individual and peer supervision.
Closing Date: 23 June 2019
