Rehabilitation Psychiatry Float Specialty Doctor Psychiatrist

(Specialty Doctor Grade) for Rehabilitation Psychiatric Services

Psychosis Care Clinical Academic Group (Complex Care)

This is an exciting opportunity for an interested middle grade doctor to work with SLaM NHS FT as a Rehabilitation Psychiatry Float Specialty Doctor (Psychiatrist) to work across its Community Rehabilitation Teams and inpatient Rehabilitation wards across sites at the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, London.

This is a well-established role in other parts of the service and has become available as there is an increased need for medical input across the pathways, in order to provide high quality patient care. The Rehabilitation services are well-led and there are opportunities for continuous professional development, research and quality improvement work.

This is a full-time 18 month fixed-term post across a variety of Community Rehabilitation Teams and inpatient services across SLaM NHS FT, based in the boroughs of Croydon, Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark in South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (there is no out-of-hours on-call commitment to the post). The post holder will mainly work in any one team at a time and at most across two teams at a time.

The SLaM NHS FT Rehabilitation Psychiatry Float Specialty Doctor will provide middle grade level medical input to Community Rehabilitation Teams and inpatient Rehabilitation psychiatric wards, with the purpose of providing cover for the team’s middle grade doctors, to cover for planned leave/absence of junior medical staff. The post-holder would rotate to cover vacancies in the Complex Care CAG Rehabilitation services, based at sites across Croydon, Lewisham, Lambeth and Southwark. Each service has a dedicated Consultant Psychiatrist and several have a middle-grade (ST4-6) and/or core trainee (CT1-3).

The SLaM NHS FT Rehabilitation Psychiatry Float Specialty Doctor will be involved in the assessment and management of adults who are of a clinical and risk profile requiring Rehabilitation psychiatric input. The Rehabilitation psychiatric services interface with other community teams and services, acute inpatient teams, triage services and care home staff.

The post will be based at one, or a maximum of two sites across the Trust in South East London. The post holder will work in a variety of clinical services and would benefit from a genuine focus on continuous professional development.
