Then take a step towards LPT...

Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust (LPT) provides a range of community health, mental health and learning disability services for people of all ages. Delivered through over 100 settings from inpatient wards to out in the community, our 6,500 staff serves over 1m people living in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.


 

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic clinical psychologist to work in our Enhanced Rehabilitation and Recovery Pathway. This is an innovative post that will work across both of our rehabilitation mental health inpatient services for working age adults and our newly developed community team. The post holder will undertake psychological assessments, formulations and interventions as part of a multidisciplinary team. There is opportunity for group work alongside individual interventions and opportunities to contribute to service developments. We have close links with the local university and opportunities for research and teaching alongside the supervision of trainee psychologists. Psychological Services are well established within out rehabilitation services and you will work alongside experienced clinical psychologists with high quality supervision and administrative support.

 

The post would suit a newly qualified psychologist or someone who is looking to move into the area of adult inpatient working.

 

For further information and to arrange an informal visit, please contact Dr Kelly Fenton, Consultant Clinical Psychologist, on (0116) 2255820.

 




We are committed to providing the best care that we can to our patients, and so some of our roles involve a Maths and English assessment. Where this is so, details will be shared with you as part of the recruitment process.

Details of our benefits, pledge and other important information about the application process, and working for us is contained in the documents linked to our advert.

For areas where our teams work to staffing rosters, rosters are set in advance at a team level and you will be joining an established roster. Your rostered shifts will be confirmed to you when arranging your start date. We will consider requests to vary working patterns in line with our flexible working policy.

To make the most of your application, we may consider successful applicants for vacancies for the same post in different locations where this is appropriate and meets our mutual requirements.

For all substantive roles the appointment of every new member of staff (excluding medical and dental staff) to a post is subject to a 6 month probationary period, details of which are in our Probation Policy.

We aim to develop a workforce that reflects our service users. To this end we actively implement equal opportunities in employment and service delivery and seek people who share our commitment. We strongly encourage applications from all sections of the community, particularly from underrepresented groups, including members of our black and minority ethnic communities. All jobs will require permission to work in the UK.

For all jobs the cost of undertaking a DBS disclosure at the required level will be met by the individual. This will be deducted from salary following commencement.

Requests from applicants to work alternative hours to those advertised may be considered.

Applicants who are currently ‘at risk’ within the local NHS, and meeting essential criteria will be given preference for interview over any other candidates who may apply for this post.
