Full Time
We are excited to be able to advertise a full-time Consultant Psychiatrist to provide clinical leadership to the Inpatient Wotton Lawn Hospital based in Gloucester. This is a post vacated by a Consultant Psychiatrist moving roles internally.

Wotton Lawn Hospital in Gloucester has 66 acute beds and a 10-bedded intensive care unit. Dean ward is a 15 bed all female ward covering patients from the Gloucester community, admissions being through the Gloucester Crisis team.

Main duties of the job

You will provide senior clinical leadership to Dean Ward. This will include working with medical colleagues, the wider MDT and the patient's supporting system. The role will include both direct patient contact and consultation/supervision of others.

You will be the Responsible Clinician for your inpatients and will be expected to exercise RC responsibilities in accordance with the Code of Practice. A key responsibility will be providing written and oral evidence at Mental Health Act Managers' Meetings and Review Tribunals.

About us

We encourage a healthy work-life balance. Our medical directorate also supports all doctors through positive relationships with the LNC and Medical Staffing Committee.

At Gloucestershire Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust, we are supportive of the people we care for in the community and aim to provide a fully responsive service to everyone who needs it. This is the same approach we take for our employees. We look to value the skills and experiences of those we work with, whether they are service users, carers, families or those looking to work with us.

Gloucestershire Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust is part of the NHS. We treat NHS patients according to NHS principles and standards. The difference is the Trust is accountable to local people, rather than to Government, and so we are able to work closely with our community to develop services in the way that best suits the needs of local people.

Our Staff Survey results showed people at our Trust feel they are engaged, part of a team and work for a compassionate and inclusive organisation.

Our overall scores were better than average in eight of nine themes and level in one - the best overall results for a community, mental health and learning disabilities Trust in the south west and first equal amongst all sector NHS providers within the region too.
