Consultant Forensic Psychiatrist
An opportunity has arisen for a full time Consultant Forensic Psychiatrist. This post will provide an excellent opportunity to work with an expending Mersey Care NHS Trust based at the Scott Clinic Medium Secure Unit. The Unit provides a comprehensive forensic treatment service to Merseyside residents.
Scott Clinic is part of Mersey Care’s Integrated Forensic Service providing all aspects of care from High Security to Low Security, Community and Prison In-reach. In-patient facilities are based at the Scott Clinic which is a 56 bedded unit, with an 8 bed female ward and an additional 10 beds at Reed Lodge Step Down Unit. Our new Medium Secure Unit, Rowan View on the Maghull Campus, will open its doors in Autumn 2020. The Scott Clinic will then transfer to this purpose built unit.
You will join a team of a total of 5 Consultant Forensic Psychiatrists. There is a dedicated Forensic Outreach Service providing follow up for discharged patients.
Mersey Care NHS Trust is an ambitious and expanding Trust, committed to pursuing the values of Perfect Care. There are opportunities to become involved in a range of transformational work streams. Our recent CQC Inspection rated all our sites as Good.
