This service is forward-thinking, open to new ideas and a holistic approach is taken to patient care and treatment.  


We currently have two vacancies:

Vacancy 1 - working in Acquired Brain Injury, we have a Consultant Psychiatrist vacancy in our admissions ward.  You will be responsible for the care of patients with complex mental health and neuro-rehabilitation needs.  There is a full multidisciplinary team, including a consultant clinical neuropsychologist and specialist occupational therapist.  


Vacancy 2 - working in our Lowther Dementia Village, our Consultant Psychiatrist will work alongside a dedicated and specialist team caring for patients with advanced dementia and functional illnesses.  Lowther Dementia Village has a full care pathway for men, including an admission ward, a complex care ward, and a ward for patients with increased personal care or physical healthcare needs.
