The North Region Health and Care Collaboration and NHS Tayside are seeking to appoint to 1 WTE Consultant within the North of Scotland Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services Regional Young People’s Inpatient Unit (YPU) based within NHS Tayside. 

The YPU is a new purpose built unit that opened in April 2015 and provides intensive inpatient assessment, care and treatment for adolescents from across the North of Scotland including NHS Grampian, Highland, Orkney, Tayside and Shetland within the age range of 12 to 18 years who suffer from major psychiatric disorders which cannot be met within an outpatient or intensive outreach / home based treatment service.  The YPU has 12 beds and offers a broad range of therapeutic interventions including individual, group and family therapy.  The unit is supported by a regional network team including a Network Manager, Network Liaison Nurses and an Information Officer.  The regional team provides consultation, supervision, training and support to other professional who work with Tier 4 patients in the community as well as supporting transitions into and out of hospital.  As part of our team, you will coordinate care, provide tier 4 consultations, and offer advice to local CAMHS teams across five Health Boards in the North of Scotland. 

The service is a dynamic, forward-looking service with strong links to the University of Dundee, with an active interest in teaching and research.  The service has recently welcomed its second year of highly positive reports from both the Mental Welfare Commission for Scotland and the Royal College of Psychiatry Quality Network for Inpatient CAMHS (QNIC) with no recommendations made as part of the service reviews.  Both reports highlighted a strong emphasis on engagement and communication with families / carers and person centred and comprehensive care planning.  As the service has scored above 96% from QNIC, it intends to work towards QNIC accreditation early next year and if successful will become the first in Scotland to achieve this.
