Consultant Psychiatrist CAMHS
West Lothian Team 0.8 WTE (permanent)
Reference: CG 2136

NHS Lothian is committed to encouraging equality and diversity among our workforce and eliminating unlawful discrimination. The aim is for our workforce to be truly representative and for each employee to feel respected and able to give their best.

To this end, NHS Lothian welcomes applications from all sections of society.

Applications are welcome for the above permanent, part time (32 hours per week) post based at St John's Hosptial, Livingston.

Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) in NHS Lothian are currently embarking upon a service redesign supported by £3 million of additional investment. Applications are welcome for these vacancies. This is an excellent opportunity for a dynamic and forward-thinking Consultant Psychiatrist who wishes to contribute to our vision of getting it right for every child and young person with a mental health problem. As Consultant Psychiatrist, you will be supported to develop special interests and have excellent access to research and developmental opportunities.

Our home is Edinburgh, our stunning capital city that is a bristling, historic hive of culture with breath-taking landmarks, atmospheric festivals year-round and awe-inspiring architecture. Yet just a few miles away, you could not feel further from the city in the beautiful Pentland Hills or one of the many picturesque seaside towns of East Lothian.

For those considering commuting, in addition to Edinburgh based vacancies, we have a further vacancy in West Lothian that is easily commutable from the West Coast.

For an informal discussion please contact our friendly Clinical Director Dr Ereni Skouta by telephone on 07841 764 162 or by email at
