Hertfordshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust are looking to appoint one full time Child and Adolescent Consultant Psychiatrist for our Tier 4 provision. The Trust has been successful in attracting new NHS-England funding in order to develop the Tier 4 service we provide.

This is an exciting, new service and will provide the successful candidate with an opportunity to work with a highly committed team who want to develop and build on what we currently are able to offer. The successful candidate will be expected to provide sound clinical leadership as well as undertaking direct clinical work and providing consultation to professionals.

In return, HPFT supports and encourages consultants in their career development. The Trust has a very positive and enabling attitude to continuing professional development. Within CAMHS, colleagues have been supported in pursuing external interests, taking up research posts and completing further study as well as opportunities in leadership, management and champion roles. The CAMHS service can also be proud of the standard of care given. The CAMHS eating disorder team won the HSJ award for compassionate patient care in 2016.
