We are seeking a dynamic and enthusiastic Clinical Psychologist / CBT Therapist to join our new Adult Eating Disorders Integrated Mental Health Service (AEDimhs). This exciting opportunity has arisen due to service expansion and investment as part of the wider Community Mental Health Transformation. The new pathway will focus on the delivery of evidence-based NICE concordant treatments for people with recent onset eating disorders and eating disorders presenting with low medical risk. The successful candidate will need to be psychologically minded, have experience of service development and must be capably able to achieve deliverables within required time frames. Specialist experience of working with people with eating disorders, ideally across settings, is required.

In year one AEDimhs will be field tested in the Woking area, with the launch initially focused on seamless integration with Woking GPimhs (General Practise Integrated Mental Health Services). Progressively across the 3 years of transformation AEDimhs will then be rolled out to cover all GPimhs and MHICS (Mental Health Integrated Community Services) within Surrey & Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

In year one AEDimhs will be co-located with the multi-disciplinary team for the existing service which provides specialist assessment and treatment for adults with moderate to severe eating disorders and is based in Guildford and Epsom. The anticipation is that the effective delivery of AEDimhs will require a hybrid model of working inclusive of remote liaison with GPimhs / MHICS, teletherapy and some in-person individual and group psychological therapies provision.

The Clinical Psychologist / CBT Therapist will receive supervision and support from the Highly Specialist Clinical Psychologist and will also work closely with GPimhs/MHICS Clinical Leads and the AEDS clinical leadership team. Applicants must be a qualified and registered clinician / practitioner, and ideally have post-qualification training and experience in the delivery of NICE concordant psychological therapies for adults with eating disorders or associated mental health conditions. Additional responsibilities may include the provision of clinical supervision to other team members, working closely with the FREED champion to imbed FREED into the mild pathway and contributing to service development and transformation of the AEDS primary care pathway.

The candidate must have a full and valid driving licence and access to a vehicle for work purposesdue to the community element of this role and the large geographical area that this post covers.

Please feel free to contact Dr Harriet Winstanley Principal Psychologist and AEDimhs Clinical Lead on (01372 204001) if you wish to discuss this post further.
