Would you want to be the lead GP for ground breaking detox unit?

This is a great opportunity to be part of a small dedicated team responsible for the medical care in a 9 bedded unit! To be able to follow people through their complete treatment journey. No on-call and flexible working and hours! Up to 10 sessions per week.

The Dame Carol Detoxification Service is a new substance misuse inpatient service opened in January 2022. It is a 9-bedded unit where individuals are admitted for up to 3 weeks for critical stabilisation or detoxification to help them move forward in their recovery journey.

The direct and indirect problems from substance misuse pervade all aspects of physical and mental health care and yet the opportunities to gain knowledge and experience in this field have reduced significantly over the past 20 years as services have moved out of the NHS and detoxification units have closed down.

Working as part of a small, consistent team with one common goal: to support service users through their inpatient treatment as part of their recovery journey.

As the doctor for the unit you will admit people to the unit and manage their detoxification and any other health problems during their stay.

The variety of the role will keep things fresh and stimulating whilst being part of a supportive team.
