You will operate from the Millbrook unit at King’s Mill Hospital: a purpose-built facility with a five-bedded psychiatric intensive care unit and a 136 suite. Providing daily cover for patients from the Ashfield area and beyond, you will work closely with a nursing ward manager, clinical team leaders, staff nurses, healthcare assistants and occupational therapists to deal with a diverse caseload. Your responsibility will span acute referrals, short-term home treatment, discharges and moves from acute care plus follow-up, and you will also provide clinical leadership to the ECT Clinic, which has been rated as excellent by the ECT Accreditation Service of the Royal College of Psychiatrists.
To be equal to the challenge, you will require membership of the Royal College plus Approved Higher Training in General Adult Psychiatry. In addition, you should hold a CCT or be within six months of attaining this at the time of interview, or alternatively be eligible for entry onto the Specialist Register in General Adult Psychiatry. Finally, Section 12 approval is essential as Mental Health Act Assessments will be part of your role.
