Are you flexible, enthusiastic and committed to providing excellent patient care? If so we have an exciting opportunity for you! Due to additional funding we are looking to develop the service and have an opportunity for a part-time (30 hours per week) Band 8a Clinical Psychologist to join the Community Integrated Neurology and Stroke Service (CINSS).

CINSS was established in 2016 as part of the Better Care Together Initiative and strives to provide specialist integrated care to patients in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. The team continues to rapidly evolve and provides varied exciting opportunities to develop the service further, both clinically and organisationally. The successful candidate will join a specialist multi-disciplinary team comprising of Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Dieticians, Clinical Psychologists, Rehabilitation Consultant and Generic Rehabilitation Technical Instructors.

The team provides patient-centred, goal-directed specialist neuro-rehabilitation in patients own homes, wider community and outpatient settings for people with a wide range of neurological conditions, brain injury and stroke. The CINSS Clinical Psychologists are an integral part of the team and, together with our multi-disciplinary colleagues, we aim to help patients to optimise their functioning and achieve their rehabilitation goals. The clinical work is varied, and includes supporting patients and the people around them with challenges associated with cognition, behaviour, mood and psychological adjustment.

This would be an ideal post for you if you are hoping to gain a broad experience in neuropsychology and if you enjoy multi-disciplinary work. You will be supervised by the lead Clinical Psychologist within CINSS and there are also strong, established links with the wider Neuropsychology department. There may also be the possibility to explore future rotations to other roles within the neuropsychology department, should this be of interest.

For discussion, please contact Debbie Blaze, Clinical Service Manager 07789 938807 or via email deborah.blaze@leicspart.nhs.uk.
