The Trust is keen to appoint a Specialty Doctor specialising in Adult, Youth (18-25) and Later Life psychiatry, based in our community services in Ipswich.
Our IDT model is made up of community teams for Adult, Youth, Later Life, and Learning Disability along with other specialist services such as Eating Disorder, Early Intervention and Children’s mental health. Our Adult and Youth (18-25) pathways cover the full range of mental health presentations for the population.
We deliver high quality care and involve individuals and their families in everything that we do. There is a multi-disciplinary team made up of full time Consultant Psychiatrists, nurses, social workers, psychologists, assistant practitioners and support workers.
The Trust encourages applications from highly motivated, enthusiastic doctors who would welcome the opportunity to work in a high quality service in a beautiful part of the world. The Trust encourages leadership roles for senior clinicians as part of the core job and in additional roles, where available, in medical education, management, teaching and research. These posts will work under the supervision of the respective team’s Consultant.
It’s an exciting time to join us as Suffolk is undergoing a transformation of its mental health services as part of a multi-agency system wide change along with local partners and stakeholders.
Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust was founded in January 2012, coming together from Norfolk & Waveney Mental Health Trust and Suffolk Mental Health Partnership. Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust provides child and adult mental health services, learning disability, wellbeing and eating disorder services.
Top reasons to work and live in Suffolk:
The Trust believes in equal opportunities and welcomes applications irrespective of age, disability, ethnic origin, gender, sexuality or religious belief.
EQUAL OPPORTUNITIESApart from its legal duties in relation to equality and diversity, the Trust recognises and actively promotes the benefits of a diverse workforce and is committed to treating all employees with dignity and respect regardless of race, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation, religion or belief. Additionally, people with disabilities that fall under the Two Ticks - Guaranteed Interview Scheme will be offered an interview providing they meet the minimum criteria for the post (outlined in the Person Specification). DISCLOSURE AND BARRING SERVICE CHECK (formerly CRB) FOR POSTS WITH DIRECT SERVICE USER CONTACT - Please be advised that due to recent changes in the DBS Service, organisations no longer receive copies of DBS Disclosures – these are sent directly to candidates only. Therefore, it will be your responsibility, if successful, to ensure that this is taken to the appointing officer as soon as you receive it. Alternatively, if you have subscribed to the update service, we will be able to check your status once we have your authority to do so.
The Trust has now introduced a DBS Update Service which is a contractual requirement. You need to subscribe when you have applied for your DBS clearance and there is a time limit to subscribe of 19 days after receipt of your DBS disclosure. Please ensure that this is completed within the set time scale.
This update service is an annual subscription at a cost of £13 to you. This will enable the Trust to have instant online access to your DBS record, with your consent, and so will remove the need for you to have to apply for this repeat check again.
You must have appropriate UK professional registration.
This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
