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.

We are excited to offer an 8a Clinical Psychologist in Neuropsychology role to work into the Leicestershire Neuro-Rehabilitation Units. The units compromise of both Level One and Level 2a units providing highly specialist rehabilitation to people with Acquired Brain Injury and Complex Rehabilitation needs across the East Midlands.

We are looking to recruit a psychologist with experience of neuropsychological assessment, formulation and rehabilitation for patients with highly complex cognitive, emotional and behavioural difficulties in the context of a neurological condition. There will be opportunity to work with individuals to provide psychological and neuropsychological assessment and intervention during their inpatient admission. This may include working with people in prolonged disorders of consciousness, traumatic brain injury, hypoxic brain injury and complex physical health needs and other neurological conditions.

This role will also include liaising and working with family members and there is also potential to be involved in developing and delivering group work. The successful candidate will work supported by the Band 8b Psychology Lead for Inpatient Neurorehabilitation and will work closely with the MDT to offer joint working, consultation and training. This role is primarily within the inpatient services at this time but there may be opportunities for working across other parts of the neuropsychology pathway.

The post sits within the Leicester Neuropsychology department which includes neuropsychologists and clinical psychologists working within various specialties including inpatients, outpatients and community. The successful applicant will join a supportive department with regular supervision and opportunities for continuing professional development and support for those who wish to pursue careers in neuropsychology. Research and evaluation activity is actively promoted within the service and there will be opportunities to develop these areas in line with the applicant’s special interests and service objectives.

Newly qualified applicants may be considered for appointment at a Band 7 on a preceptorship basis.
