We are looking for a dynamic inspiring leader, someone who is enthusiastic, innovative and wants to work in a service that is committed to providing individualised evidenced based care.

Thames Ward is a 15 bedded acute service for assessment and treatment in the medium secure service which is part of forensic pathway managed by the Behavioural and Developmental Psychiatry Clinical Academic Group. The pathway includes medium secure beds for both male and female patients, an offender personality disorder unit, a low secure unit, an open rehabilitation ward, and four community forensic teams. The individual services support each other and meet weekly to plan care transition. We accept admissions from prison and high security. Patients receive treatment and support to enable them to move on to rehabilitation wards, to lower levels of security, or directly to the community. Average length of stay on the ward is approximately 6 months.

The team benefits from having an experienced Consultant, Specialty Doctor, dedicated OT Psychologist and Social Worker. Research opportunities are abundant. We have a large number of students from all disciplines.

The successful candidate will lead the dedicated multi-professional team in providing care for male service users. The candidate will need to be passionate about high quality patient care and have experience in leadership. The post holder will be a ‘self-starter’ and be able to work autonomously as well as part of a multi professional team.

We believe that frontline clinical leadership is essential to improving patient experience and outcomes, and offer opportunities for development, training and support. We are a forward thinking service and welcome new ideas and improved ways of working to enhance the service user experience.
