Consultant Psychiatrist in Community Mental Health, North Warwickshire

Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership Trust
£99,532 to £131,964 Per Annum
Closing date
25 Jul 2024
This post is for a Consultant Psychiatrist in the newly transformed Community Mental Health Team (CMHT). The successful applicant will lead a medical team as part of a multi-professional team in providing community care to people with mental health conditions.

The post holder will participate in providing postgraduate training to the Coventry and Warwickshire Junior Doctor Training Scheme and undergraduate education for medical students from Warwick Medical School.

A key aspect of this post will be building relationships and supporting GPs working within their allocated Primary Care Network.

Main duties of the job

The post-holder will provide clinical leadership within the team that will provide medical care for working age adult patients from Coventry who present with severe and/or complex mental health problems.

Alongside a Neighbourhood Lead each psychiatrist is aligned to a PCN or group of GP surgeries and will take the medical lead for the assessment and treatment of patients from those PCNs. They will build relationships with the GPs working with their PCN(s) including meeting with them and offering advice. This will include a different way of allocating calls to the GP adviceline with consultants responding to calls from their allocated PCN(s) rather than being on a locality rota. Consultants will play a greater role in triage and referral allocation in their place.

Consultants will supervise the work of career grade and junior doctors within their teams. They may also be offered additional support from medical support workers/nurse prescribers/community pharmacist.

Doctors are based with the community teams they are part of. In some places teams will work from several different bases. Where that is the case the doctors base will be decided based on the location of the PCNs they are covering.
