Devon Partnership NHS Trust
CONSULTANT PSYCHIATRIST IN Liaison Psychiatry based in Exeter
Applicants are invited to apply for a substantive consultant post in Liaison Psychiatry/Psychological Medicine in Devon Partnership NHS Trust.
Devon has a strategic vision to develop integrated psychological medicine services over the next 3-5 years. Benefiting from investment from Five Year Forward View the service can now offer three further consultant posts in Exeter and Torbay to build beyond Core24 liaison psychiatry services toward fully integrated psychological medicine services. Two of the posts are primarily based in Exeter and link with the Royal Devon and Exeter Foundation Trust hospital and with surrounding primary care providers.
One is primarily based in South Devon and based with the current liaison psychiatry team providing a service to Torbay District General Hospital.
These posts are a continued expansion of liaison psychiatry in Devon Partnership Trust following the successful award of national funding from NHS England to provide increased and responsive MH provision in acute hospitals. They also represent the Devon wide joint commissioning vision between both MH and physical health providers to transform the MH provision across integrated pathways in physical and mental health.
The post holders will have opportunity to develop their careers in learning & teaching, leadership & management and research & development at the University of Exeter.
Inclusion on the GMC Specialist Register or doctors who are Specialty Registrars within 6 months of completion of their CCT at the time of interview or hold an equivalent European or Non-European qualification, is essential.
