Consultant in General Adult Psychiatry

Job Reference: 130-MHDU9490S-D-B

Swansea Bay University Health Board
Adult Psychiatry
Central Clinic, Swansea

Welcome to Swansea Bay University Health Board. We welcome applications from people who share our values: caring for each other, working together and always improving.

Swansea Bay University Health Board reserve the right to close vacancies after 24 hours if a large number of suitable applications are received. We encourage early applications to ensure consideration for a post.

Prior consideration for this vacancy will be given to staff currently awaiting Redeployment and we therefore reserve the right to withdraw this advert at any stage.

Applications may be submitted in Welsh. Applications submitted in Welsh will not be treated less favourably than an application submitted in English.

As well as providing a comprehensive psychiatric service to the south and west of Swansea, this Community Mental Health (CMHT) post will provide you with the opportunity of working with others to look at ways of improving the service.

The post is a community post so there is no regular requirement for any in-patient work, although liaison with the in-patient service is expected when necessary.

The role also gives you the opportunity to liaise with the wider mental health team such as Crisis Response, Home Treatment Team and Local Authorities.

You will be part of daily multidisciplinary team meetings in Central Clinic, not only as a lead clinician in a supervisory role, providing medical leadership to the team in a caring and supportive way, but as a valued colleague. At these meetings the workload is discussed and allocated. There will also be the opportunity to participate in local consultant meetings to provide clinical input to groups considering service issues.

Being so close to the sea gives you the experience of both city life and relaxation with many stunning coastal walks, gardens and eateries, with places awarded "Outstanding Natural Beauty" only a short drive away.

If you feel this is a post for you, we would be happy to discuss further and if possible, for you, show you around.
