This is a fantastic opportunity for a highly skilled and innovative Clinical Psychologist to play a lead role in the strategic development and delivery of Psychology within the Older People’s Mental Health and Dementia service across Surrey and North-East Hampshire, and to play a key role in supporting the transformation of our services in line with the Community Mental Health Framework.

Staff well-being and development are at the heart of our ambitions. We have an active CPD program across the Trust in relation to both clinical and leadership development, as well as a staff resilience hub supporting individuals and teams.
