This is a hugely exciting time for the Trust having recently achieved an OUTSTANDING CQC RATING and being one of just five mental health and learning disabilities NHS trusts in England to hold an outstanding rating.

We are driven by our values. If you believe in Respect, Kindness and a Positive outlook then you'll be right at home.

Main duties of the job

This is an exciting opportunity to develop a fairly new service for people who are experiencing a first episode of psychosis. There is a significant evidence base to support the interventions used to promote recovery in this patient population that includes medication, psychological interventions and family work.

The post holder will be involved in the assessment and management of a wide range of early psychosis presentations. Comorbid conditions including substance misuse and mood/anxiety disorders are the norm and offer challenges in terms of diagnosis and treatment.

You must ensure the relevant professional registration is maintained, including Section 12, Approved Clinician, and Responsible Clinician status.

Due to Royal College delays, this JD is still awaiting approval. This will be shared with shortlisted applicants.
