Consultant in General Adult Psychiatry - Rushcliffe Community Mental Health Team and Mental Health Clinical Navigation
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.
In this stimulating position, you will provide medical leadership to the Community Mental Health Team serving the borough of Rushcliffe, and could also find yourself involved in postgraduate training or the CLARHC. At the same time, you will play an important role within Mental Health Clinical Navigation – a newly funded function enabling GPs to have immediate direct contact with a Consultant Psychiatrist. Under this model, the GP and Consultant will discuss the case and jointly decide the clinical outcome, which could include an urgent clinic run by senior nurses. We are currently reconfiguring the way Clinical Navigation operates and will welcome your input and fresh ideas.
Naturally, we will encourage you to pursue CPD in line with the recommendations of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, including full funding where appropriate. We require an ambitious psychiatrist with membership of the Royal College or equivalent body, plus Approved Higher Specialist Training in Adult Psychiatry. Equally importantly, you should hold a CCT or be within six months of attaining this at the time of interview, or be eligible for entry onto the Specialist Register in General Adult Psychiatry, and will hold Section 12 Approval in order to conduct Mental Health Act Assessments.
