Are you a Consultant Psychiatrist CAHMS who is seeking a new position where your expertise is rewarded?

Delivering the highest standard of care to young people and their families, you’ll coordinate interventions in response to complex mental health needs.

Accepting admissions from all over the UK, my client's adolescent intensive care unit here at Woking is supported by a dynamic, multidisciplinary team. The hospital is also home to low secure facilities for men and women with complex mental health needs.

The hospital provides specialist services for young people primarily referred from CAHMS acute services. Patients present a high level of risk which cannot be managed in a CAHMS General Adolescent Unit.

Taking a whole person approach to the assessment and treatment of inpatients at Consultant level, and delivering the highest standards of care possible, you’ll manage a dynamic MDT, cover peers when necessary and be available for on-call cover. Passionate about providing the best interventions for service users, you’ll be a key player in care assessment meetings and tribunals. And as a committed and intuitive leader, you’ll bring your expertise to ensure the safety and development of your team and the inpatients in your care.

Already taking an active part in service improvement and keen to develop your knowledge and skills in the use of psychological treatments, you hold a MRCPsych (or equivalent qualification) and a Higher Psychiatric Training in Forensic and/or specialist registration in CAMHS Psychiatry. With PICU experience, you deal effectively and constructively with conflict in challenging situations.

In return, you’ll receive a competitive salary and a range of benefits including:

  • Teaching and CPD programmes
  • Generous study and exam leave
  • Financial support for further training and personal development
  • Active participation in clinical governance
  • Appraisal and peer supervision
  • Possible rotation between services
  • Contributory pension scheme
  • Free life insurance
  • Free meals on duty
  • Comprehensive employee assistance programme and discount centre
  • Health Cash Plan
