Consultant in Acute Adult Psychiatry-Inpatient Triage
An existing Consultant post within the Adult Mental Health Directorate in Newham has become available due to the former substantive post-holder taking up a new senior role within the Trust. The successful candidate will join Ruby Triage Ward and work alongside a job-share consultant psychiatrist to provide high quality and rapid care to male patients admitted to the Newham Centre for Mental Health. Since June 2019 Ruby Triage Ward has successful moved from being mixed ward to an all male ward, with the female Triage function shared with Ivory Ward.
Newham hosts a WHO Collaborating Centre (the only one specifically for Mental Health Service Development in the world) and the successful applicant will have opportunities for academic links with the Centre and its large research group in social psychiatry. He/she will also be enrolled on the Trusts highly regarded Improvement Science in Action training and will be encouraged to contribute to our unique Quality Improvement programme.
