DBT Therapist - Downview

Band 8A


CNWL (Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust) has almost 7,000 staff providing integrated healthcare to a third of London's population, Milton Keynes and areas beyond.  We involve service users, carers, the public, staff and partner organisations in the way that we are run. 

Our catchment area spans diverse communities, with over 100 first languages spoken. It contains areas of great affluence as well as areas of much deprivation.  We are committed to providing services that meet the needs of the people who use them, and we actively encourage involvement from local people who can help make a difference.  We’re proud of our diversity and we continue to undertake new initiatives to advance equality for LGBT+, BME and people with disabilities to promote good relations and understanding between our staff.

We are recognised locally, nationally and internationally for providing high quality, innovative healthcare. We aim to employ only the best people, and our experts are frequently called upon to contribute to national health strategy and policy, and many models of our care have been adapted for use in other countries.

We offer a generous relocation package (subject to eligibility assessment) and flexible working options, including bank assignments for most roles.  See attached Staff Reward and Wellbeing Handbook detailing our benefits, discounts and wellbeing intiatives for staff.

Become part of our team. We care for you as much as you care for others.

CNWL operate a range of healthcare services across a number of prisons and secure facilities in London and the South including within all the Surrey prisons of Send, Coldingley, High Down, Downview and Bronzefield.

Joining a large, forward-thinking Trust will bring successful candidates excellent development opportunities, an exciting career structure, and job satisfaction. Working alongside experienced in-reach team colleagues, we are looking for the best clinicians, who will work well as part of a Team and Trust with a ‘can do’ attitude.

A rare and exciting opportunity has arisen for a qualified DBT therapist at HMP Downview on a part-time basis.

The Options service is a modified forensic DBT Programme offering treatment for women who have been identified on the Personality Disorder Pathway. A well established team seeks an enthusiastic, committed and adherent DBT therapist.
