We are currently looking to appoint a Specialty Doctor, to work in our learning disability IPU to support the current team.
Working at St Andrew’s Healthcare
We’re the UK’s largest independent provider of NHS services, a unique mental health charity aspiring to deliver truly world-class care. Our focus is transforming lives through ground breaking treatment and rehabilitation. You’ll find a welcoming, inclusive culture here, inspired by the shared values of our team. Everyone has their part to play in the amazing work we do – you’ll have every opportunity to get what you want from your career.
As the UK’s leading charitable provider of specialist mental healthcare, St Andrew’s is unlike traditional independent providers. With no shareholders, we can reinvest any surplus into growing our specialist services, building state-of-the-art facilities, developing our staff and providing truly individual care. This IPU is forward-thinking, open to new ideas and a holistic approach is taken to patient care and treatment. We take a psychologically informed approach to working with our men within the context of very likely trauma experiences.
Your role with us
We are currently looking to appoint a Specialty Doctor, who can work in our learning disability IPU to support the current medical and RC team. We are looking for someone who can share their innovative ideas of delivering mental health care to the best outcomes.
We welcome applications from high calibre candidates who can bring relevant skills to any areas of the complex and personalised casework that we undertake. With solid links to the Regional Approval Panel, we have successfully supported a number of our speciality doctors progress to Approved Clinician status and provide a large range of CPD activities, and opportunities for assessments, research, audits etc.
This is an exciting time within St Andrews with the development of integrated practice units delivering value based outcomes. We are looking for a speciality doctor who can be a part of this unique opportunity to shape our future services.
Due to the amount of liaison involved with the general hospital and external parties, you will be a strong & effective communicator. MRC Psych is preferable (although not essential) & membership with the GMC will be required.
We can be flexible about the number of hours worked from 0.6 to full time.
Please see below some of the comments from current doctors within St Andrews healthcare:
“The working environment is conducive for anyone wanting to learn and progress in medicine. In particular, you will have plenty of senior support and guidance.(I don’t know of any previous post I’ve worked in, in which I have had as much access to a my Supervising Consultant/GP).
At St Andrew’s you will definitely feel you are a genuine and appreciated contributor to the Multidisciplinary Team. And, you will certainly feel you are making a positive difference in patient’s lives.”
