Aneurin Bevan University Health Board support flexible working.

Please note that this vacancy may be withdrawn at any time should it be filled via the internal redeployment process

The NHS across Wales is transforming, and leading the way in delivering system-wide improvements is Aneurin Bevan University Health Board (ABUHB), in south-east Wales. An exciting range of opportunities have been developed in line with our innovative Clinical Futures Model and you could be joining ABUHB at a truly once in a generation era. There has never been a more exciting time to join our team as we pioneer new ways of delivering health services across the Gwent area.

The development of a Psychological Well-being Practitioner (PWP) Service is the first of its kind in Wales, with the people of Gwent being able to have access to timely support for their mental health needs within a Primary Care setting. Attached to GP practices across Gwent, Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners will be integrated into primary care multi-disciplinary teams within a dedicated geographical area promoting place based working.

Working as a Psychological Well-being Practitioner Supervisor, you will be a crucial part of the leadership and management structure providing regular clinical and management supervision to PWPs located across Gwent; this will include weekly case management and group clinical supervision. In addition, you will assist in the development of the service by identifying local patterns of clinical need and to overseeing the development and delivery of time-limited, evidence based, group interventions where services are not locally available. You should possess a postgraduate diploma or equivalent qualification in therapy modality (HIT/CBT), ideally have a PWP Postgraduate certificate and be accredited or eligible to be accredited to a relevant professional body. Assessed experience of specialist psychological assessment, formulation and interventions is also essential, along with experience of supervision and ability to demonstrate leadership and management skills. It goes without saying that you will need to have a good understanding of the role of a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner, as well as the demands and needs of the role. Equally important, is a high level of enthusiasm, motivation and a passion to make a real difference to make this initiative a success.

In return, you will be supported by a clinical psychologist dedicated to making this service a success; your wellbeing and feeling supported professionally is considered central. Not only will you be part of our local Primary Care networks, we also hope that you will feel at home in the larger Primary Care Mental Health Support Service (PCMHSS) which will meet regularly to develop a sense of belonging, identity and feeling valued.

Renowned for its vibrant market towns, excellent commuter links, rolling hills, countryside and easy access to the coast and bustling city centres all rolled into one incredible living experience, it’s no wonder that South East Wales attracts more and more residents each year!

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post; Welsh and/or English speakers are equally welcome to apply.

Closing date - 25th August, 2020
