We currently have a very exciting opportunity of a one year, full time, 40 hours per week, Locum Consultant post in Tier 4 CAMHS in Edinburgh. The vacancy has arisen partly due to maternity leave and also other service reconfiguration. 

Tier 4 CAMHS in Edinburgh comprises of a 12 bed acute adolescent inpatient unit, the Intensive Treatment Service and Early Psychosis Support Service (both providing care in an assertive outreach model) and two therapeutic day programs (an over 12s in a day hospital model and an under 12s).

The separate services are well supported by enthusiastic and vibrant multidisciplinary teams. There are exciting new developments afoot as the Tier 4 services are moving to co-locate with the New Royal Hospital for Sick Children, where we will have closer links with Paediatric Services.

Our service has strong links with the University of Edinburgh and the Medical school, giving a lot of opportunities for teaching. 
This year long post would give an opportunity to the Consultant in the post to gain further experience in Tier 4 and also gain an understanding of our broader CAMHS service, where there are going to be further permanent posts coming up in the near future in Edinburgh.
