We are seeking Staff Grade Psychiatrists as part of an excellent Mental Health Service, 22st Dec to 11th Jan in a Female PICU ward that deals with emergency and crisis admissions. Candidates with experience in women’s services will be ideal, however others are welcome to apply. You will need to be able to showcase your recent clinical work in Psychiatry.

Our client is a leading provider of inpatient mental health and LD services, delivering care across their network of 100+ hospitals – all of which have a Good or Outstanding CQC rating.

The ward offers a one-hour response time to all emergency referrals, with a decision on a placement no more than an hour after we receive adequate clinical information. The ward provides PICU services, 24-hour medical cover allowing admissions to occur 24-hours-a-day.

The service focuses on length of stay and making sure people move as quickly as possible to the most appropriate and least restrictive environment. The service also aims to prepare service users for discharge straight back to their community under the care of the community mental health team, or to the least restrictive environment appropriate to meet their individual needs.
