An opportunity has arisen for a Clinical Psychologist, Systemic Therapist or Psychological Therapist to join an exciting collaboration between NSFT, West Suffolk Schools and the West Suffolk CCG.

The PST will work closely with education staff within each of the schools including the senior leadership team, teachers, support staff, students and parents.
