We have an exciting opportunity for a Band 8a Clinical Psychologist to work in the community Older Persons service line across the Great Yarmouth and Waveney locality. The post is hosted at Carlton Court Hospital near Lowestoft.

This diverse role will enable you to undertake assessment, formulation and intervention work with older people with a range of functional and organic conditions. The work will be multi-disciplinary and will involve you working closely with nursing, medical and therapy colleagues in the Community Mental Health Team (CMHT), Memory Treatment Service (MTS) and the Dementia and Intensive Support Team (DIST).

The role will be fully supervised and supported by the 8b Clinical Psychologist also working in the Great Yarmouth and Waveney locality and you will work closely together to develop and enhance psychological services and approaches across the locality. This will involve consultation, training and service development roles. A significant proportion of the role will involve neuropsychological assessment of complex cases for suspected neurodegenerative impairment. There will be opportunities to be involved in service evaluation, audit and/or research. There will also be opportunities to access relevant continuing professional development.

We are looking for a HCPC accredited Clinical Psychologist; applications from people about to complete their training in Clinical Psychology will also be considered. We are seeking a candidate who can demonstrate the ability to apply psychological understanding to their clinical work with compassion and care whilst promoting the values of trust.

The service has very well established links with the Doctorate in Clinical psychology based at University of East Anglia, and the post holder will be expected to supervise trainee Clinical Psychologists on placement.

 

Interviews will be held on Monday 5th March and this will be confirmed nearer the time.
