Post holders will be expected to participate in the on-call of full-shift rota.
You must be registered with the General Medical Council (or be eligible to become registered) and hold a license to practice if you would like to apply. You will also have completed the Foundation program or be able to demonstrate the relevant competencies.
Your duties will include providing a good standard of practice and care and you will be responsible conducting a minimum of two outpatient clinics per week; you will have a caseload of between 20 and 30 outpatients, whose diagnoses will include Schizophrenia, Bipolar Affective Disorder, Unipolar Depression, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Anxiety Disorder, and Personality Disorders.

You will liaise with the Team’s Medical Secretary to arrange appointment times for the patients.
When based at the inpatient ward, you will ensure that all new patients admitted under your team’s care are fully assessed, including an assessment of their physical state, so that a preliminary formulation of their problems is made within two working days of their admission.
