Consultant Perinatal Psychiatrist
Melbury Lodge, Winchester
Full time, part time or job share
The Hampshire Perinatal Service has twice won UK Mental Health Team of the Year (2004 and 2013) and was assessed as ‘Outstanding’ on all measures by the CQC in 2015.
We are an energetic, creative and happy team, who aim to offer and inspire excellence in community and inpatient perinatal mental health care. The 10-bed Winchester MBU, accredited by CCQI, admits women and babies from across the South and beyond. The community team includes psychologists, nursery nurses, nurses and psychiatrists and covers a population of about 24,000 births, with six main maternity units.
This is a fabulous opportunity to apply for a new consultant post due to the expansion of the service and retirement of a long-term locum consultant. The contribution to inpatient and community work is negotiable on appointment. In addition to this post, medical staffing in the service comprises two other consultants (both 8PAs), two foundation doctors and a senior trainee (ST5 as of August 2017).
Dr Gregoire, who is retired from the clinical consultant role, will continue to provide some service leadership and mentoring of new staff.
For more information about the post and a visit to the service, please contact Dr JoSpoor s, Perinatal Consultant or Chris Bailey, Perinatal Service manager (firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com). Candidates are recommended to visit the service.
