Consultant Psychiatrist – Hospital


    Barchester Healthcare

    As a Consultant Psychiatrist at a Barchester independent mental health hospital, youll make sure we deliver the best clinical care for our patients. Well look to you to take responsibility for our older adult patients and see that they receive holistic, person-centred care based on the recovery model. Day-to-day, that means you could be doing ward rounds, supervising referrals and admissions, or evaluating and developing our services alongside the hospital leadership team.

    Our multidisciplinary team will rely on your psychiatrist perspective on patient assessment, formulation and treatment. Youll supervise their work, focusing on junior medical staff, and help out with in-house training programmes and Continuing Professional Development (CPD). As a Consultant Psychiatrist, youll make a real impact here not only on our patients lives, but the lives and careers of your team.

    Youll have a recognised medical degree, MRCPpsych (or equivalent) and full GMC registration to join us as a Consultant Psychiatrist. Well also look for your eligibility for Section 12 approval and inclusion on the Specialist Register (or equivalent) in general adult psychiatry or eligibility within six months of your interview. Youll have significant experience of assessing and treating patients in a psychiatric setting, as well as clinical auditing, risk assessment and management knowledge.

    Its also important that youre able to communicate with a multidisciplinary team and support them to maintain the standard of care. That means youll deal well with pressure, keep staff morale high and encourage best practice. Youll have a clean, full driving licence to be able to travel between work sites when necessary.

    As well as a competitive salary, Barchester offers one of the best rewards packages in the care sector. Your generous benefits would include:

    Free learning and development
    Automatic enrolment into our profit share scheme
    A range of holiday, retail and leisure discounts
    Unlimited access to our Refer a Friend bonus scheme

    If youd like to use your insight and people skills in an organisation that provides the quality care youd expect for your loved ones, this is a rewarding place to be.
