Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Posts (4)
This is a truly exciting time for the NHS in North Wales. We are undergoing a significant phase of review, transformation, investment and renewal that will enable us to continue to improve the health and meet the care needs of our population in the years ahead.
Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB) is the largest health organisation in Wales, serving a population of almost 700,000 people across the six counties of North Wales (Anglesey, Gwynedd, Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham).
This area is geographically diverse, comprising large rural areas, an extensive coastline, a number of large population centres and industrial areas. It offers spectacular landscapes and a rich cultural heritage – many of the population we serve speak both Welsh and English.
We employ around 16,000 staff and have an annual budget of around £11 billion. As a fully integrated organisation we commission and provide a full range of primary, community, mental health and acute and elective hospital services.
As well as coordinating the work of 121 GP practices, and the NHS services provided by dentists, opticians and pharmacies across North Wales, we operate a network of over 90 health centres, clinics, community health team bases and mental health units, three district general hospitals (Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor, Glan Clwyd Hospital near Rhyl, and Wrexham Maelor Hospital) and 22 other acute and community hospitals.
Our ambition is to support the continued improvement in the health and well-being of the people of North Wales. Central to this journey will be the contribution of our Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists who will complement the expertise of a wide range of other experienced CAMHS professionals as part of our rapidly developing services. In North Wales you will have the opportunity to work across different sites and to take an active part in the development of innovative and effective approaches to patient care and service delivery across a large geographical area.
We are looking for experienced Psychiatrists with a keen interest in service development to enhance our focus on seamlessly integrating early intervention and prevention, community services and highly specialised tier 4 services. Strong leadership and teambuilding skills will be important for the post-holders to foster the values that are important to us, putting patients and carers at the heart of everything we do, with respect and dignity.
The North Wales Consultant Psychiatry Peer group meets monthly in a good humoured and lively forum for peer support and professional development. There is a journal club and psychopharmacology group and a culture of openness and joint planning. The successful candidate will also enjoy being part of a close-knit, sociable local team, with all the support and training you need to develop your professional skills. North Wales offers a range of coastal and inland opportunities for leisure and is in easy reach of the key North of England towns of Chester, Manchester and Liverpool.
