ELFT have an exciting opportunity for 2 Consultant Child & Adolescent Psychiatrists to join our CQC rated Outstanding Foundation Trust.

Main duties of the job

You will join an experienced multi-disciplinary team with a model that includes high quality delivery of clinical assessment and interventions.

Newham CAMHS is undergoing significant transformation and expansion of the service to become a truly embedded community facing service building strong links with the local authority, schools, youth services and voluntary organisations. You will join a group of over 100 clinicians from a wide range of disciplines working across the borough. The service is a vibrant specialist child and adolescent mental health service with a reputation for innovation and flexibility in meeting the complex mental health support needs of Newham's children, young people and families.

with this by offering up to 10,000 for removal and associated expenses.
