Are you a flexible, autonomous clinician who can adapt quickly to new situations and provide high level clinical care?
We are looking to appoint a Peripatetic Specialty Doctor in Psychiatry.
This post offers the perfect opportunity to gain experience, broaden your knowledge and learn new skills in different psychiatry settings within the security of a substantive post.
On appointment your first post will be Bristol based, managing inpatients under the care of the full time Consultants across the Inpatient/PICU wards at Callington Road Hospital.
This is a career grade post and includes one hour per week protected supervision time with the Consultant. Attendance at the weekly postgraduate programme at Callington Road Hospital is encouraged. A Peer group for Specialty Doctors is available and the doctor will be expected to attend this regularly.
