Want to make a difference to the lives of 1.7 million people?
KMPT is proud to present our innovative approach to Psychiatric services

It’s an exciting time to join us: we have been rated ‘Outstanding’ by the CQC
for Caring and ‘Good’ overall and there is currently increased focus on mental health nationally.

Outstanding and ambitious

We provide mental health, learning disability and substance misuse services as well as other specialist services to 1.7 million people across Kent and Medway.

Why join us?

  • We offer support for special interests
  • We have a highly commended research team and encourage our staff and patients to become involved in research
  • We encourage staff development and have an internal  leadership and mentoring programme
  • We have teaching opportunities available with links to UK Universities and an international medical school.

 Nurturing medical leadership  

We promote and encourage medical leadership and our new structure provides the opportunity for every consultant to take on a leadership role in service delivery and governance.

We believe in the importance of the medical voice in mental health and have
developed a service delivery model where the consultant leads a smaller service unit allowing for leadership and active involvement in service designs and development.

We nurture the potential in each and every person in our teams and consider
their personal development as a priority in our service delivery – making you
an integral member of our family.
We offer all newly appointed consultants mentoring to support their
development as leaders.

Trust benefits

Staff enjoy a range of benefits including generous annual leave, a cycle to work scheme and support around health and wellbeing. We offer free body and mind MOTs which support the physical and mental health of all staff.

As the ‘Garden of England,’ Kent is one of the best places to live and work in the UK with a rich history and excellent connections to London and Europe. Kent offers fantastic lifestyle opportunities, whether you want a weekend break in Paris, activities in Kent’s beautiful countryside or lazy picnic in our beautiful harbour towns.

The county has many areas of outstanding natural beauty and the rolling hills
around Kent are perfect for pub lunches and nature walks. We have exceptional country pubs, beautiful countryside, great schools and much more!

Thinking of relocating?

In addition to the £8k relocation expenses to support you in making the
move to a new career and home, we offer up to a further £15K towards
attracting the most talented staff, in many posts, subject to conditions.

Change lives in Ashford

Ashford is a modern town with fast links to London and Europe with its
Eurostar station. It has a wide range of good quality state schools. Shopping

The Ashford CMHT provides a service to the adult population in Kent who are registered with a GP practice in the Ashford area.

Our trust provides strong support to junior doctors in the area. We currently
have a trust grade doctor, two foundation doctors, a core trainee and one of

complex clinical issues, managerial and leadership duties.
