CONSULTANT Adult Psychiatrist
South Gwynedd, Meirionydd
Full time (10 Sessions)

Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board is looking for an enthusiastic individual to work as a Community Consultant Psychiatrist in the North Wales area.

The post holder will be responsible for the day to day management of patients from the South Gwynedd (Meirionnydd) area, ensuring that patients are seen in a timely manner, appropriate to their needs. The post holders will be expected to deliver a service to patients under both secondary care CMHT and primary care services where appropriate.

The service will deliver a needs led service and therefore the post holders will be expected to manage those above 65 until such time as their needs are more appropriately met by the Older Persons Mental Health Services (transition arrangements are under review).
The CMHT for South Gwynedd has an overall caseload of 350. It is expected that the post holder will see patients when required by the care coordinator and act as care coordinator for a small case load.

The post holder will be based with the CMHT and work with the integrated/single line team manager to ensure clinical leadership of the multi-disciplinary team. The post holder will assist with clinical supervision of the team ensuring that robust management plans are in place for those in whom it is warranted. This will be done as part of a meeting structure where the most clinically complex patients are discussed and reviewed with the whole team. It is anticipated that the post holder will assist in training of team members in clinical matters.

For a full list of duties, please see job description.

South Gwynedd is superbly located in North Wales, an area of outstanding natural beauty, within easy reach of Chester, Liverpool & Manchester.

This is an exciting time for us here at Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board. We are the largest health organisation in Wales and, as a fully integrated organisation, provide a full range of primary, community, mental health, acute and elective hospital services for a population of almost 700,000 people across six counties of North Wales (Anglesey, Gwynedd, Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham), as well as some services to parts of mid Wales. We serve a bi-lingual population and are committed to improving their health and well-being through everything we do.

The Health Board employs around 16,000 staff and has a budget of around £1.1 billion and is responsible for the operation of three district general hospitals (Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor, Ysbyty Glan Clwyd near Rhyl, and Ysbyty Maelor in Wrexham) as well as 22 other acute and community hospitals, and a network of over 90 health centres, clinics, community health team bases and mental health units. It also coordinates the work of 121 GP practices and NHS services provided by North Wales dentists, opticians and pharmacies.

We are undergoing a significant phase of transformation, review and renewal that will position us to achieve our future ambitions as the leading integrated care organisation in Wales. Central to this journey will be the contribution of our workforce who with strong team working skills, will be able to demonstrate the values that are important to us, communicating well with both colleagues and patients, who have the vision and ability to help move our services forward whilst getting the best of each other, treating others with respect and dignity and never compromising on quality.
