West London NHS Trust is one of the most diverse providers of NHS mental and physical care in the UK. We are rated ‘good’ by the Care Quality Commission and ‘outstanding’ for caring and our forensic services.

We are here to care for people with mental and physical illness, helping them to recover and go on to lead full and productive lives. We aim to be the best organisation of our kind in the country.

We provide care and treatment for children, adults and older people living in the London boroughs of Ealing, Hammersmith & Fulham and Hounslow, delivering services in the community (at home, in GP surgeries, care homes), hospital, specialist clinics and forensic (secure) units.

Our physical healthcare services include intermediate care services in Ealing as part of the Community Independence Service partnership.

Our national, specialist and forensic services include:

  • Medium secure services on the St Bernard’s Hospital site in Ealing
  • Services for people with complex and severe personality disorder at the Cassel Hospital in Richmond
  • High secure services at Broadmoor Hospital in Berkshire

We are a teaching Trust with a growing research portfolio, working with academic and industry partners.

Our 3400 staff are dedicated to improving lives, working with patients, service users, carers, families and partners across the communities we serve.


An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Clinical Psychologist to work within our expanding Older People’s Mental Health Services. The post-holder will work within the in-patient services which service the culturally diverse boroughs of Hammersmith & Fulham, Ealing and Hounslow. They will work directly with individuals with complex mental health needs and dementia through individual and group modalities. They will also help develop skills in the team in relation to understanding the psychological needs of these patients and their carers.

 

The client population within the service includes people with a wide range of difficulties and the whole service works within a Recovery/Trauma informed model and focusing on person centred care for those with dementia. Whilst we as psychologists aim to work within proven effective modalities, it is also understood that to truly meet client needs, flexibility of approach is essential. There will also be an emphasis on working with staff, through supervision, training and joint working to maximize the potential for improving the psychological well-being of all patients and carers.

 

Research activity is also encouraged and well supported within the service. There will also be active involvement of older adults referred and their family/friends in the service and a focus on improving access and services for people from seldom heard groups (eg LGBT+, BAME). There will be regular individual supervision from an experienced Clinical Psychologist. You would also be part of a strong local psychology service working within Older People’s Mental Health Services and would also access wider Trust resources for professional support and continuing professional development
