Consultant Old Age Psychiatry
Providing Partnership Services in Bedfordshire, Essex, Luton and Suffolk
We are looking to recruit a substantive consultant in old age psychiatry following the retirement of the previous post holder based at the King’s Wood Centre in Colchester. The successful candidate will work with services to provide medical input and leadership to half of the northeast area of Essex with respect to the memory assessment team and the dementia support team. As the area continues to develop and evolve services, an increased primary care focus will be expected, and the post holder will have the opportunity to be involved in this process.
The post holder will work with two other full-time consultant colleagues in old age psychiatry to provide community services. One colleague covers the other half of the area with respect to memory assessment and dementia support, the other works with the functional and dementia home treatment teams.
You must have full GMC registration and be on the Specialist Register, with an appropriate CCT or be within six months of obtaining your CCT on the date of the AAC.
For further information, please contact Dr Jennifer Ford, Clinical Director 01268 243581
