Our team provides a comprehensive specialist service to patients, clinicians, and carers in the general hospital setting. The team is aCORE 24, PLAN accredited servicewhich means you are joining a team that is a cohesive and already established.
Our work is intense & specialist, but we are a very welcoming and fun group of clinicians who thoroughly enjoy what we do together as a team, and we will make sure that you will grow immensely as a clinician.
To join us you will have an excellent and positive approach to work, with an outstanding, demonstrable background of providing high quality care.

You will have experience and willingness to teach and educate others within the team and the wider network as well as a commitment to service development and the best possible outcomes for people in the acute hospital setting.
This is a challenging but rewarding role, offering an exciting opportunity to applicants who have a strong assessment and therapeutic skills. You will need the ability to work autonomously whilst still contributing to the team as a whole. Previous experience of working in Liaison Psychiatry and across ages is desirable, although not essential.
