Consultant Adult Psychiatrist
Jersey General Hospital, St Helier
Fixed-term for 1 year
Salary scale £87,624 - £132,285 per annum (dependent on experience)
An exciting opportunity to join our team and take forward Mental Health Services as part of a far-reaching reorganisation and redesign of Community and Social Services on the beautiful Island of Jersey.
Come to a place that is better for you, as well as your patients. Jersey’s Health and Community Services Department runs the Island’s integrated, taxation-funded health and care system that is largely free at the point of delivery.
Jersey has started a comprehensive programme to transform health social care. This change is supported with significant investment in Community and acute hospital services. Funding has been secured to build a new 300 bed General Hospital that is in the early stages of planning. A strategic programme for a comprehensive Mental Health Services campus is well underway.
All the components of a health and social care system are here to work with, and in an environment where there is a greater and closer interaction with political processes than in the UK, this is an excellent opportunity to be part of developing a genuinely integrated system.
With great weather, beautiful beaches and surroundings, you will enjoy a better quality of life in our island community. In addition, with an easy commute, more time for yourself too.
Under Jersey Law, applicants must possess FULL registration with the General Medical Council and hold a licence to practise.
If you would like to discuss the post informally please contact Clinical Director Mental Health Services Dr Miguel Garcia Alcaraz, (01534) 445862 MG.Alcaraz@health.gov.je
