Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust Rehabilitation and High Support Care Hub provides Psychiatric Rehabilitation Services to patients from the Greater Manchester area. The directorate is renowned for high quality service delivery, excellent staff opportunities and innovative service developments, having expanded bed numbers more than three-fold in the past ten years. We continue to explore and develop new services for specialist mental health provision. Pennine Care offers consultants a number of benefits, including a significant well-being offer, subsidised salary sacrifice care leasing scheme, cycle-to-work scheme, retail and restaurant discounts, coaching/mentoring and peer group support.

Role Summary:

We are aiming to recruit a full-time (10 PAs) consultant to an established post covering 16 beds on Bevan Place and working with the Pathways team based at Heathfield House, Stockport. There are opportunities for additional remunerated responsibilities.

Key Responsibilities of the Post:

To provide Responsible Clinician duties to up to 16 rehabilitation inpatients at Bevan Place (a rehabilitation ward for men aged over 50) and work with Pathways team which involves assessment of patients requiring admission to low secure services within our trust.

Responsible Clinician is supported by a full time middle grade doctor

Main duties of the job

Liaise appropriately with the Ministry of Justice regarding those patients who are subject to Restriction Orders, and maintain an adequate system to ensure that the regulations laid down by the Ministry of Justice are adhered to.

Assess a proportion of the patients referred to the all RHSD services in the setting from where they are referred, which may entail travelling to any part of the UK (almost always within Greater Manchester and only in exceptional circumstances outside the region). Assessments will be reported back to the multi-disciplinary referrals meeting for discussion, before a final decision is conveyed to the referrer.

Regularly assess the clinical state of the inpatients, and be involved in psychological and/or family-based therapies, depending on the appointee's training and interests.

Attend regular detailed Care Programme Approach meetings to review progress to date and set longer term goals, in consultation with family/carers and Care Coordinators

Attend weekly Clinical Team Meetings, and contribute to the multi-disciplinary review of the patients. The consultant will normally chair this meeting. The aim is to review progress and to set short-term goals in keeping with the longer term goals set by the CPA review.
