Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust provides health and social care services across a variety of care settings in and across Sussex, Hampshire, Kent and Medway, and London. We aim to realise the potential of everyone who uses its services and to enable staff and bank workers to do a great job; we believe great things are possible if we never give up.

The Trust is seeking to appoint a Consultant Psychiatrist to work on Pavilion PICU based at Mill View Hospital in Hove. This post is (6PA) based on an adult male psychiatric intensive care unit. The Consultant Psychiatrist will provide senior medical input and clinical leadership to the ward team and will be involved in the assessment and management of adults who are experiencing a crisis in their mental health. 

Patients will be subject to detention under the Mental Health Act, and as such, there is a requirement for the Consultant Psychiatrist to undertake MHA-related work (preparation of MHA-related reports and attendance at MHA-related hearings). The post holder will work alongside 1 Associate Specialist and other members of the Pavilion multi-disciplinary team, which includes pharmacy, nursing, occupational therapy and psychology health professionals.
