We are a financially stable progressive mental health and community
services trust with very strong clinical leadership at all levels of the
The trust has a focus on improving the experience of patients, carers and
our staff. For the last two years we have been developing a special quality
improvement programme that provides our clinical staff, patients and
carers with skills to transform our services. We believe that our staff are
the organisation’s greatest asset and are the best agents for change.
We were graded as Outstanding by the CQC in September 2016 and
as Provider of the Year 2016, as well as being rated as the best place to
work in mental health by the Health Service Journal. In 2015 we acquired
mental health services in Luton and Bedfordshire.
This is an exciting opportunity to work as a Consultant Psychiatrist in the
Hackney Integrated Learning Disability Service, which is a joint health
and social care service provided in partnership with the London Borough
of Hackney. The work is primarily community based, with no direct
inpatient responsibility. In line with the Transforming Care agenda, we
have a strong record of supporting people with a high level of needs in
community settings, supporting access to generic mental health services
where possible, and minimising the use of specialist inpatient beds.
There is a strong commitment to training, and you would be expected to
provide clinical supervision to both core and higher psychiatric trainees
placed within the service, as well as providing placements for medical
students from Queen Mary, University of London. We also have strong
research links with University College London and the you would be
expected to encourage participation in their research programs.
