Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust has been providing a comprehensive CAMHS service in Buckinghamshire for 7 years. The newly developed CAMHS service is based on a partnership between Oxford health NHS Foundation Trust (main contract holder) and Barnardos. The new service is based on the ‘Thrive Model’ and during October 2015 service transformed away from the traditional CAMHS tiered model to a service strongly influenced by children young people, their parents/carers and stakeholders began. The new model is based on ease of access, getting advice, consultation, support, and specialist clinical pathways.
We are seeking a 1.0 WTE Speciality Doctor to join our Getting More Help team in the Buckinghamshire CAMH service. The post is based at the Sue Nichols Centre, Aylesbury but the role is countywide and may require clinical activity at other bases such as High Wycombe or Amersham.
The Getting More Help pathway offers a service to Children and young people with moderate to severe mental health disorders including Depressive disorders, Anxiety disorders, Obsessive Compulsive disorder, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Somatic syndromes, and Attachment Disorders.
We are looking for candidates who can demonstrate their ability to adapt to the changing circumstances of modern mental healthcare provision. We welcome applications from highly motivated colleagues to work collaboratively with our team managers, and to provide leadership and clinical expertise to our highly skilled and committed multidisciplinary teams. The teams are dynamic and forward-looking with a wide range of disciplines working together in a highly collaborative, multi-skilled and effective way.
There are also close links with Oxford University which include a term-time weekly academic meeting, regular research meetings, research opportunities, journal clubs and audit meetings. The Trust hosts or collaborates with a wide range of research infrastructure. In September 2016, a partnership between Oxford Heath NHS Foundation Trust and the University of Oxford was awarded £12.8M to support a new NIHR Biomedical Research Centre (BRC; Director Prof John Geddes) focused on mental health and dementia. The Trust welcomes applications from appropriately qualified clinicians who would like to work with the BRC, CLAHRC or NIHR CRN (Clinical Research Network) as part of their agreed job plan. Trust has recently set up a Centre for Patient Safety and Quality. There will be opportunities for medical input into this Centre.
