Consultant Acute Adult – Rose Ward
The Trust is committed to providing high quality integrated health and social care for local people with mental health problems in South West London and more specialist mental health services for people throughout the UK.
We are a dynamic, financially stable mental health trust which has recently been rated ‘good’ by the CQC both overall and specifically for our acute care services. We have recently begun a Trust wide quality improvement programme involving all clinicians. We are investing in further improvements to our acute services, including innovative ‘crisis cafés’ for service users, and new integrated out of hours services.
We are looking for another Consultant Psychiatrist to join the Acute & Urgent Care consultant body. This is an established post, arising because of the move of the former consultant to another part of the Trust.
Rose Ward is a 23-bed ward specialising in the acute psychiatric care of women of working age, primarily from the borough of Wandsworth. It is a well-established ward with a good clinical team, including support from three junior doctors. The postholder will provide clinical leadership to the team alongside the Ward Manager. There is the opportunity to become involved in redeveloping the pathway for women receiving acute and intensive psychiatric care in hospital.
If you are an experienced dynamic practitioner who would like to be part of this expanding service we would like to hear from you.
