Band 8A Clinical Psychologist CAMHS/Paediatric Liaison - Moray Post
We are looking for a dynamic individual to join us working with children, young people and their families within the 0-18 multi-disciplinary Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) in NHS Grampian. We are seeking individuals that share values that are important to us - striving for excellence being respectful, kind, collaborative, efficient, forward thinking, patient centred and resilient - and those that embody these values in their day to day work.
We have an 11 month temporary 1.0wte post within the Moray CAMHS team, providing Paediatric Liaison to the Paediatric Services based at Dr Gray's Hospital, Elgin. This is a new post and there will be opportunities to develop services within the hospital and within the Paediatric Health casework within the CAMHS team. There are lots of opportunities for staff to contribute to developing services. We are part of the North of Scotland Regional Tier 4 Network, and share a close relationship with Dudhope Young People's In-patient Unit.
There are excellent opportunities for a wide range of clinical experience (1:1, family based and group); developing skills in multiple offered therapeutic modalities; contributing to departmental teaching / training; research and audit; and to be part of a service undergoing new developments. One to one, peer and multi-disciplinary supervision structures are in place to support professional reflection and growth. There is an active monthly CPD programme.
Experience of working collaboratively with other professional groups and partner agencies, demonstrable research and audit experience and previous experience of working autonomously within CAMHS will be an advantage. Experience of Paediatric Health Psychology would also be an advantage.
Consideration will be given for internal applicants seeking a secondment opportunity.
