A unique and exciting opportunity has arisen to join the Staff Wellbeing Service and Lincolnshire’s Staff Wellbeing Hub which is hosted by LPFT.
Staff Wellbeing Service is a bespoke, specialist team, committed to providing fast-access psychological and physical healthcare interventions to staff working within LPFT.
The Lincolnshire Staff Wellbeing Hub has been developed in the wake of Covid-19 and is committed to enhancing mental health resilience and to support access to psychological treatment for frontline healthcare workers and care staff involved in caring for service users during the pandemic.

The Hub provides a single point of access to trauma informed care in a timely, confidential and culturally competent way and seeks to not only support and signpost to the abundance of excellent current resources across the Lincolnshire Integrated Care System (ICS), but also has the capacity to offer psychological support within the Hub. The Hub is a collaboration across Lincolnshire health and social care organisations, delivered by Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

We provide holistic care from the Lincolnshire Staff Wellbeing Hub and core Staff Wellbeing service, with treatment to support psychological and physical wellbeing and other interventions such as wellbeing workshops, psycho-education groups and physiotherapy. Assessment and therapeutic work is currently being undertaken virtually but with some options to face to face contact where necessary and appropriate. As well as providing individual intervention, we offer consultancy and guidance to managers and HR around staff member’s wellbeing.

Within this clinical role you will be responsible for the delivery of trauma-focused care and support to professionals and clients accessing the Hub, supervision and training to colleagues as well as a direct therapeutic offer for healthcare and care staff accessing the Hub and core Staff Wellbeing Service. You will also be a key part of strategic stakeholder engagements and assertive outreach, to our many partnership organisations.

There will be a wealth of opportunity to develop personal areas of interest across all modalities, which will include groups work, supervision, teaching and training and research. Areas of interest which are currently being extensively developed within the Hub are; Long-Covid; BAME engagement and accessibility alongside other protected characteristics; Specific Team Resilience Frameworks and Moral Injury, among many exciting other areas.

The successful applicant will have the appropriate experience and qualifications to meet the post requirements and as importantly be genuinely interested in wellbeing and our personal responsibility around this.
The post holder would provide direct interventions to those staff who present with complex symptoms of trauma, supporting them to receive evidence based interventions and have a clear focus upon their recovery. Effective liaison with all key stakeholders is a key requisite of this service.

This post may be suitable as a development post for a newly qualified Clinical Psychologist into a B8a Specialised Clinical Psychology post.

This is an exciting time for LPFT, as we continue our journey of service improvement, transformation and delivering high standards of care for our patients. Staff Wellbeing is at the forefront of helping staff to manage the challenges that this can bring and maintain a healthy, happy workforce. The role this post holder will have will support the wider Staff Wellbeing Team and therefore the patients those staff members are working with.

For informal discussion please contact the Service on 01522 511800 to speak to Nikki, Jess, Lisa Larkin or Heidi Thompson or email and one of us will get back to you.

Any attachments will be accessible after you click to apply.
