General Adult Acute Inpatient Psychiatry

The Isle of Man Mental Health Service (MHS) is a care group within Manx Care and provides a comprehensive range of local mental health services to the Island's community.

In collaboration with the supervising Consultant Psychiatrist and a multi-disciplinary inpatient team, you will provide an effective clinical service with responsibility for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of illness, and the proper functioning of the acute inpatient setting.

You will take a lead in the identification of cases for psychiatric assessment and intervention, and contribute to the subsequent formulation of care plans for those in need of specialist intervention.
