We seek to appoint a clinician, with an enthusiasm for General Adult Community Psychiatry to join our team of Psychiatrists in NHS Highland.

This post offers the opportunity for a motivated doctor who enjoys teamwork to be part of a modern service for General Adult Psychiatry to a population spread across a number of remote and rural communities, well supported by community health teams, colleagues in Primary care and Third Sector care providers. The post holder will be supervised by and work alongside a Consultant Psychiatrist attached to the same sector with the aim of providing medical care and treatment to those with moderate to severe mental disorder. Eligibility for s22. AMP status would be an advantage.

The recent pandemic has accelerated our existing capacity to deliver this service using digital technology, which opens up further opportunity and flexibility to the post holder. The post would be based at New Craigs Hospital, Inverness in the South and Mid Operational Unit at NHS Highland with a number of options in terms of geographical bases for the postholder. Some travel will be expected and reimbursed.

There is an enthusiastic peer group of Specialty Doctors in Mental Health which meets regularly; CPD and development of special interests is valued and encouraged.

Interested applicants should contact Dr Timothy Agnew, Interim Clinical Lead General Adult Psychiatry, New Craigs Hospital on timothy.agnew@nhs.scot. Prospective applicants are most welcome to contact us in order to arrange an informal visit.
