The Lishman Unit provides a national tertiary inpatient service to patients with complex neurological presentations (including acquired brain injury, functional neurological disorders, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s Disease). The unit takes referrals from all over the UK, and patients often have complex and unusual problems. There are two core care pathways on this 15-bedded unit - acquired brain injury and neuropsychiatry – and patients may have co-morbid psychiatric conditions or display challenging behaviours. This is a clinical post and the successful candidate will primarily provide specialist psychological assessment and treatment for patients with functional neurological disorders as part of a multi-disciplinary team on the neuropsychiatry pathway. The post-holder will also have a leadership role regarding the provision and development of psychological services on the unit.

This is an opportunity to join an experienced and supportive multi-disciplinary team and to work with a highly complex and diverse client group. There are opportunities for the successful candidate to develop their own research projects and the post-holder can be supported to develop further skills as a Neuropsychologist, including working towards the Qualification in Neuropsychology (QICN).

The unit is currently based at the Bethlem Royal Hospital. There are plans for the unit to return to the Maudsley site at Denmark Hill following refurbishment work; however, there is no confirmed moving date and the unit will remain on the Bethlem site for the foreseeable future.
