We have an exciting opportunity for an Clinical Psychologist(s) to play a lead role within the Central Norfolk Adult Community City and South Teams. The post is a six month fixed term/secondment opportunity from 2nd July 2018 to 31st December 2018 and a job share will also be considered. 22.5 hours of the post will be in the City Teams and 7.5 hours will be in the South Teams.

We are particularly looking for someone to develop our Clinical Pathway in Psychosis and to provide line management, clinical and professional supervision to 8a psychologists and band 7 psychological therapists. Other key roles for this post include the management of referrals; conducting assessments; carrying a clinical caseload of service users with severe and complex presentations (individual and group work); providing consultation and training to team members and consolidating the establishment of a psychological formulation based approach within the teams. Experience of working with service users presenting with psychosis would be essential. The post holder will be working alongside other 8b clinical psychologists and will need to be able to share responsibilities and decision making regarding the overall provision of Psychological Services within the City and South Teams.

The City Psychological Therapists are partly based at the Julian Hospital, Bowthorpe Road, Norwich and partly at the Peddars Centre, Hellesdon Hospital. South locality Psychology Services are based in Gateway House, Wymondham. In both locations psychological therapists are based within friendly and supportive multidisciplinary teams, and offer specialist interventions including CBT, CAT, ACT, Compassion- and Schema-Focused Therapy, as well as EMDR. Options for group work include the Emotional Wellbeing group, MBT group, and the Veterans' Stabilization Programme for ex-Forces personnel. Psychology Services across the South and City Teams have strong links with partners including UEA, and NSFT's Recovery College, in which they play an active role.
