The Older Adult Service is looking for a new consultant to join the team following the departure of the previous Consultant.

The service is continually improving and developing, with full engagement of the consultants in this process. The Trust is committed to improving services for older people, especially those with dementia, and this is an ideal time to join the team in Worcestershire.

Opportunities are available for those who wish to be involved in service leadership and re-design. Non-clinical interests will be supported in line with Trust strategies.

Interest and previous experience in leadership and management would be an advantage.

Enthusiasm and innovation will be welcomed and there will be a degree of flexibility in establishing a role, to complement the special interests and lead roles of the current psychiatrists.

Contributing to the teaching and supervision of our trainees and specialty doctors will be expected.
