Consultant Psychiatrist in General Adult Psychiatry (Inpatient)
Newsam Centre, Seacroft Hospital, Leeds
10 PAs (40 hours per week)
This is an exciting opportunity within our working age acute inpatient services. We are seeking a consultant for an inpatient ward and would consider increasing the offer to include additional leadership APAs for candidates particularly interested in leadership and service development.
Ward 4 is a 21 bedded male acute ward with an established and experienced team. The postholder will be supported by 0.5 WTE Specialty Doctor and a Core Trainee and will work closely with the wider inpatient ward group in providing high quality inpatient care to acutely unwell working age patients.
The postholder will be based at The Newsam Centre and will enjoy regular contact with other professionals from the services that are based there (Eating disorders, Forensics, Gender Identity, Chronic Fatigue and PICU)
The Care Group has a successful Crisis Assessment Service, Crisis Assessment Unit and Intensive Community Services which ensure effective gatekeeping of the inpatient beds and rapid access to acute community alternatives to inpatient care.
Leeds Partnerships NHS Foundation Trust is a leading provider of specialist mental health services and our ambition is to be the best provider we can and aim to continue being a national leader in training, research and development.
We have an excellent record in training and education, evidenced by a highly successful MRCPsych course for trainees in psychiatry and the Andrew Sims Centre for Professional Development as well as close links with the Academic Department of Psychiatry in Leeds.
Leeds is a vibrant, northern city in the midst of fantastic countryside, which provides an ideal place for city culture, the outdoors or family life. It is a major financial and strategic centre, which has two leading universities including a large medical school.
