We are continuing to develop and enhance our services in line with the changing evidence of trends in substance misuse. CNWL have ensured that we are well placed to work with the emerging groups of substance misusers (alcohol, stimulant and new psycho-actives) and we have built a solid reputation with GPs, commissioners and acute hospitals in treating the whole range of addiction problems.

Key research areas within the Division include neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration, bipolar and related disorders, biology of addiction, molecular neuroimaging and clinical translation. The director of the Centre for Neuropsychopharmacology is Prof David Nutt and Deputy, Prof Anne Lingford-Hughes. Each Centre has a multidisciplinary team offering a range of expertise

We are looking for enthusiastic, specialty doctor to join our service which is delivered in partnership with a voluntary organisation. You will be working alongside medical colleagues, non-medical prescriber and supervised by the Clinical Lead for the service.
