SABP Psychiatric Liaison services provide high quality mental health care to adults across emergency departments and acute wards within the acute general hospitals. Having secured additional funding to include Psychology within the teams, we are seeking an enthusiastic, innovative and committed person to develop this new role and to provide a range of evidence-based assessments and interventions to people using the service. We are hoping to recruit into two full time roles (37.5 hrs) one within Epsom General Hospital and the other within the Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford.

Your own caseload will involve work with a wide range of adult clients presenting with both functional and/or organic problems across the hospital. As well as providing direct assessments and evidence-based interventions, you will be working closely with the Liaison MDT and physical health colleagues across the hospital, supporting them in developing their understanding of mental health and helping to learn and embed more psychosocial approaches to the management of mental health difficulties.

In consultation with service leads, you will be responsible for developing the psychology offer within the hospital. You will be providing professional leadership and supervision to any Assistant and Trainee Psychologists within the service. Working with other senior leaders you will be working to continually innovate and improve the service.

As a Trust we pride ourselves on our innovative and collaborative approach to providing the highest quality, person-centred care. We have a strong focus on staff development and support, with excellent leadership and clinical CPD offers both internally and through our relationships with academic institutions. The Health Service Journal’s coverage of our staff survey results identified the SABP as being in the top ten places to work, as recommended by staff.

All teams are accredited by the Psychiatric Liaison Accreditation network which ensures our commitment to offer best practice within liaison psychiatry services.

Please ensure that you state your preference for location (EGH/RSCH) within additional information on your application.
