Would you like to be part of the new NHS? Here in Dorset we are going places and Dorset HealthCare will be at the front of true integrated care and patient focused clinical care.

Dorset HealthCare can offer excellent career development opportunities in medical education, medical leadership and clinical expertise.

This post is for a full-time General Adult Psychiatrist working in Weymouth & Portland Community Mental Health Team, a multi-disciplinary team that provides comprehensive community based services to local people. It is one of two full-time consultant posts on offer in Weymouth, following changes to medical staffing that have increased the amount of consultant time in the CMHT.

The postholder will be supported by the Trust and locality management team to provide high quality patient care and clinical leadership to the CMHT. It is an excellent opportunity for any psychiatrist who enjoys the satisfaction and rewards of working with colleagues to improve the lives of people with severe mental illness. The team base at Westhaven Hospital, Weymouth makes for an easy commute from the many attractive places to live in the west of Dorset. 

In return we can also offer you:

Flexible working options to include condensed hours and part time working
A generous relocation package of up to £5,000
