The BSW Specialist Community Perinatal Mental Health Service are looking for a positive and enthusiastic Specialty Doctor to join our new service based in Chippenham.

This is a full time post but part time working may be considered.

Following a successful bid to NHS-England, additional funding has been released to expand and increase medical cover within the perinatal team.

This exciting new post will support the clinical work of the new BSW service, by providing additional senior medical input in the management of complex perinatal cases across the BSW STP.

The Specialist Community Perinatal Team works across Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire, providing support for women who experience serious mental health problems or present with a high risk of relapse during pregnancy and the postnatal period. We work closely with primary care, maternity services, adult mental health teams, early years’ services and independent sector organisations to ensure that women can have access to specialist support, advice, risk assessment and care planning in relation to their mental health needs. The team can work alongside women and their families until their infants first birthday.

This is an exciting opportunity for a Specialty Doctor with an interest in Perinatal Mental Health to join our recently established new service.

The post includes one hour per week protected supervision time with the Consultant. Attendance at the weekly postgraduate programme is encouraged.

You must have completed at least 4 years’ full time post graduate training (or its equivalent gained on a part-time or flexible basis), at least 2 years of which has been in Psychiatry. You should demonstrate excellent communication skills and show you can work collaboratively in a team.

We are committed to your development, making the very best of your talent and helping you to achieve your career aspirations.
