NHS Medical & Dental: Consultant

Humber Teaching NHS Foundation Trust are proud award winners of the HSJ Provider of the Year 2019

Job overview

An exciting opportunity has arisen to recruit to the  Consultant post in the award winning Inspire CAMHS inpatient unit.

The post holder will principally provide leadership and senior medical input to the Unit. As the Consultant Psychiatrist at Inspire CAMHS inpatient unit you will work as part of a confident and developed clinical MDT in our 13 bedded mental health inpatient unit for young people. Nine beds are for general adolescent admissions and four are PICU (Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit) beds. The inpatient unit is equipped and staffed to treat young people struggling with a wide range of mental health issues such as depression, severe anxiety, psychosis and eating disorders.

This is an exciting prospect, and you will need to be flexible, visionary and have the interpersonal skills to engage with patients and carers, and develop professional working relationships with multi-disciplinary and multi-agency teams.

You will work within an innovative model of treatment in our unit and we’re proud of our Trust community and know you will receive a warm welcome and all the support you’ll need from your new team to get you started.


Main duties of the job

The service provides timely and appropriate assessment and intervention which facilitates that young person’s progress on their recovery journey to affect discharge to the care of their local community CAMHS teams. The unit also aims to reduce out-of-area placements for young people across Hull, the East Riding and North and North-East Lincolnshire, cut the lengths of inpatient stays and lead to better outcomes for young people.

We think differently about our psychiatry roles and will work with you to develop an opportunity that works for you.  We will support you to balance high quality patient care with pursuing your own special interests within psychiatry, as well as offering opportunities for leadership and management and leadership roles.  Whether your focus is on developing your skills for management, research, teaching or innovative service provision, we are here to listen and understand how we can support you to reach your goals.
