Consultant General Adult Psychiatrist

10 Programmed Activities per week

This is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious consultant to take on a full-time leadership role within our Acute Psychiatry service and to take part in management and teaching activities related to it.

As a senior clinician, you will have an integral role in the performance of the teams, further development of the service, and the development of the clinical pathways. The successful candidate will provide senior clinical input to the crisis and home treatment service and rehabilitation ward.

You will have experience in the assessment and treatment of patients with a wide range of mental health problems, be knowledgeable about evidence-based treatments, show leadership skills, demonstrate an ability to teach and have supervision skills. An aptitude to work collaboratively and respectfully in a multi-disciplinary team is essential.

This rewarding clinical and leadership role is situated in an environment that offers an excellent quality of life. The Isle of Wight, Britain's own island in the sun is located off the south coast of England and has a population of 138,000. It has much to offer in the way of outdoor leisure pursuits, family living and is also home to the annual music festival. It is a beautiful place to live and relax after work. Connections to the mainland are frequent, fast and efficient, with a choice of crossings via catamaran, hovercraft, or car ferry, from Southampton or Portsmouth, both of which are 90 minutes by rail from London.

If you enjoy being part of a team, are flexible and approachable and are looking for a stimulating role in psychiatry, we would be delighted to hear from you. Please contact Dr Alexis Bowers, Clinical Lead for Adult Psychiatry, through his secretary on  ( Phone number removed ) .

The Isle of Wight is a beautiful place to live with excellent opportunities for outdoor pursuits. Most of the Island is semi-rural with miles of unspoilt bridleways coursing through National Trust woods and over chalk downs. Spectacular cliff and coastal walks can be enjoyed all around the Island.

House prices compare favourably to the mainland and southern England with a wide choice of desirable property to suit all tastes. In addition, there are excellent public and private schools, and shopping and leisure facilities on the Island have improved enormously in recent years.

There are multiple frequent ferry links to the mainland and London can be reached in 90 minutes by rail from Southampton or Portsmouth. There is a regional airport at Southampton, just 30 minutes away, with flights to many European destinations as well as UK mainland cities.
