Consultant Psychiatrist in Old Age Psychiatry
Applications are invited for a full-time (10 PAs) Consultant Psychiatrist in Old Age Psychiatry based in Southport.
This is mainly in-patient based on the older adult functional illness ward with a small community caseload. The post is currently based at The Boothroyd unit, but will be moving to the brand new Hartley Hospital in November 2020 where all mental health services for the locality will be located on one site. There are 2 other Consultants in Old Age Psychiatry based at The Boothroyd Unit, as well as the community mental health teams and the ward for older people with functional illnesses for Sefton. There is a well developed liaison service at the Southport District General Hospital and we have very close links with the medical services for older people provided there.
A service line review is planned for this year, and this will be an exciting time to join the trust, looking at how and where we deliver services.
There is a thriving postgraduate programme and good opportunities exist for research and career development. Consultants are also encouraged to seek out additional responsibilities within the Trust to promote and develop the services
