Locum Consultant Psychiatrist

Job Description

C&I has worked closely with current service users and Trust staff to create a set of shared values that make sure people who use the Trust’s services get the best possible chance of a rapid recovery. We expect every member of staff to embed these values in everything they do to drive up the standards of care across the Trust. For people who use C&I‘s services, these values mean that they can be assured that through their journey to recovery they will be guaranteed:

• To receive a warm welcome
• That their dignity will always be respected
• That their care will be founded on compassion and kindness
• To receive a positive approach to care as they journey towards recovery
• High Quality Care from a highly trained team of professionals
• That each individual will be part of the wider team in the journey to recovery –
i.e. ‘no decision about you, without you’.

C&I staff are required to reflect these values throughout their service at the Trust both:
• for people who use the services of the Trust, AND
• within their immediate teams and across the wider business of C&I.

As an applicant for this role, you are urged to demonstrate within your supporting statement a combination of evidence that reflects your competence to meet the job specification and provide examples of how C&I values are an integral part of the way you have and will continue to deliver service.

Camden and Islington are looking to recruit a bright and enthusiastic Locum Consultant Psychiatrist in General Adult Psychiatry for a 6 Month Fixed Term Contract, to start as soon as possible.

It is a community post based in the North Camden Recovery and Rehabilitation Team. This is a multi-disciplinary team specialising in the community treatment of people with psychotic illnesses. The post is based at The Hoo, Community Mental Health Clinic in Belsize Park, Hampstead. London. NW3 5NU.

The post holder will provide Consultant input to the team whilst the substantive consultant, Dr Ian Prenelle is seconded to lead the establishment of a new service, an Integrated Practice Unit for psychosis and chronic conditions. The Locum Consultant will also have the opportunity to contribute to this exciting and innovative project which will integrate the mental and physical healthcare of people with psychotic illnesses.

The post-holder will be supported by Junior medical input; a full time Higher Trainee, part-time Core Trainee and part-time FY2 Doctor. The post-holder will work alongside the two other Consultants in the North Camden R&R Team, Dr Siobhan Jeffreys and Dr Jonathan Ornstein and supported by the Clinical Director Dr Ian Prenelle. There is secretarial cover and office facilities provided. They will be supported in pursuing appropriate continuing professional development.

The Trust became a Foundation Trust in February 2008 and continues as a mental health organisation. It has well established links with the United Royal Free and University College London medical schools and the North London Junior and higher Psychiatric training schemes.

Camden is an exciting multicultural inner-city borough just on the edge of the City of London and the Royal Free Hospital is based close to the heart of the varied shops, cafes and cultural amenities in the Hampstead/Belsize Park area as well as Hampstead Heath.

This post would be a great opportunity for a Higher Trainee approaching their CCT to gain Consultant experience in a well functioning community recovery team and to participate in an important service innovation. Applicants should be within their last year of training and ideally have sought consent from their Consultant trainer and confirmed they are eligible to do this.

Full registration with the General Medical Council (GMC) and a license to practice is essential.
