Our patients and your colleagues will expect you to live the St Andrew’s CARE values of Compassion, Accountability, Respect and Excellence every single day

The Learning Disability Service

Our aim is to provide high-quality assessment, care and treatment, helping patients to progress to the least restrictive setting by equipping them with the skills required to live as independently as possible, closer to communities of their choosing.

Our teams are multi-disciplinary with extensive knowledge, skills and experience of working with individuals with learning disabilities. We include patients in planning their care, valuing and embracing each and every individual’s unique qualities.

The post-holders will be able to undertake non-clinical activities of interest e.g. research, teaching, governance and management - in an innovative way, and we actively encourage you to be a leader nationally in mental health and influence the direction of services in order for them to be the best for our patients. The formation of our services has increased the autonomy of services and enabled us to transform the care and treatment we deliver to patients.

The Role

The Learning Disability service in Northampton have an exciting opportunity for a Consultant Psychiatrist to develop and strengthen their experience working with patients in secure care settings and the chance to develop research and clinical ideas.

If you would like to be part of working with an innovative and dynamic team; be able to develop and deliver up to date treatments; and work in a supportive environment then this is the place for you!  This will be a personally and professionally rewarding role.

You will lead a multi-disciplinary team and oversee the management of patients with often complex learning disabilities.  You will be able to promote innovation and improvement of services.

We are looking for an individual who wants a role where they have the autonomy to make decisions that will help improve patient care and outcomes and has a passion about transforming care.
