ELFT has long been recognised as a centre of excellence for mental and health care, innovation and improvement. So it is a very exciting time for you to come and work for us. Our mission is to make a positive difference to people's lives by improving quality of life for all we serve.

ELFT have an exciting opportunity for a vibrant Consultant Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist to join our CQC rated Outstanding Foundation Trust.

Working from our South Bedfordshire (Dunstable) based clinic you will be joining a group of dynamic psychiatrists where you can maximise your own individual area of specialist interest within our clinical care pathways in Bedfordshire CAMHS.

You will be responsible for direct psychiatric assessment, formulation of treatment plans, leading MDT clinical discussions and helping to influence service delivery at SMT forums.

We believe that the costs associated with relocation should not restrict our ability to recruit the staff we need; if you are joining our Trust then we could support you with this by offering up to £10,000 for removal and associated expenses.

Applications will be welcomed from candidates included in or eligible for the Specialist Register or within six months of obtaining their CCT.
