CONSULTANT PSYCHIATRIST IN FORENSIC LEARNING DISABILITY – PERMANENT, EAST MIDLANDS
RIG Healthcare are working with a private client to recruit a Consultant Psychiatrist in Forensic Learning Disability in the East Midlands.
The forensic intellectual disability service for men covers two sites. The post-holder will work across the two sites but will have an administrative base. The post holder is responsible for (16 beds, male medium secure ID ) and (14 beds, male low secure ID). The forensic intellectual disability service for men operates a consultant-led medical model, supported by a full MDT including a Specialty Doctor. The focus is on high quality expert psychiatric care delivered to the ward by medical staff who are specifically trained and skilled in the models of care, and who are clinical leaders for values, ethics, and innovation. The successful applicant will be expected to work collaboratively with the MDT and with the governance structures at the hospitals.
Due to the nature of the caseload the successful candidate will have a CCT in Intellectual Disability Psychiatry or joint CCTs in ID and Forensic Psychiatry. For candidates with ID CCT forensic experience is preferable but not essential. A package of further training and support will be available to holders of ID CCTs to assist them in developing the necessary skills and competencies to work with the challenging but rewarding caseload.
