Consultants in General Adult Psychiatry - District of Mansfield
With a turnover of £444 million, Nottinghamshire NHS Foundation Trust provides a comprehensive range of services spanning mental health, intellectual disability, community physical health and prison health, as well as low, medium and high secure hospitals, including Rampton Hospital. We operate from more than 100 sites, with 8,800 highly trained and capable staff, and we are ready to go the extra mile to improve the patient experience. Research and innovation is at the heart of everything we do, and our partnerships with the Institute of Mental Health, the University of Nottingham and other stakeholders constantly redefine best practice.
Focusing on the Mansfield area of central Nottinghamshire, you will join us at a time of profound change and enjoy significant input into our restructuring. For the most part, you will concentrate on delivering direct clinical care, including patient-related administration, although we will allocate a quarter of your time to supervising trainees, teaching medical students and pursuing continuous professional development – giving you everything you need to build diverse skills and advance your career. Your clinical care sessions will centre around community work, including both frontline and outpatient assessments, and you will deal with a broad spectrum of adult patients so each day will bring different challenges.
To take on this position, you should hold approval under S12 Mental Health Act and be authorised to act as an Approved Clinician. Equally importantly, you should be a member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists or an equivalent body, with approved Higher Training in general adult psychiatry. Finally, it is essential that you are eligible for entry onto the Specialist Register or, if training, you should be within six months of attaining a CCST at the time of interview.
Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust will be a Smoke Free Trust from 3rd October 2016. This means that there will be no smoking on all Trust premises including buildings, gardens or car parks.
The Trust believes in treating everyone with dignity and respect and encourages applications from all sectors of the community. We guarantee an interview to candidates with disabilities who meet the minimum essential criteria.
We positively encourage people who have experienced mental health problems to apply for a role within the Trust.
In submitting an application form, you authorise Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust to confirm from your previous or current NHS employer and other prior employers; previous NHS service details and personal data held about you, including Occupational Health data (inoculations and screening tests). This data will be transferred using NHS Electronic Staff Record and third party systems via an automated process and only used for the purposes of obtaining and maintaining accurate employment records, should you be appointed to the post.
The Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Therefore, convictions which would otherwise be considered as 'spent' will also be checked as part of an Enhanced DBS Disclosure.
For eligible posts, DBS disclosures are mandatory before commencement of employment within the Trust. Therefore, if you are in a position that is deemed a regulated adult and/or child care role, you will not be able to start your employment until we have received a satisfactory DBS Disclosure.
