Consultant Liaison Psychiatrists (two full-time 10-PA posts) – Mental Health Liaison Service – Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, Norwich
The Trust is keen to appoint two further Consultant Liaison Psychiatrists to our rapidly expanding Mental Health Liaison Service based in the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH).
The Mental Health Liaison Service covers the full range of mental health presentations for inpatients and Emergency Department patients in this large general hospital with over 1000 beds. It has recently expanded significantly with the aim of becoming a centre of excellence in clinical service, teaching and research domains.
The Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust also provides child and adult mental health services, learning disability, forensic, wellbeing and eating disorder services.
We are a multi-disciplinary team made up of psychiatrists, nurses, psychologists, assistant practitioners and admin workers. We provide training to students from different professional groups.
The Trust encourages applications from highly motivated, enthusiastic doctors who would welcome the opportunity to work in this 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, research and teaching.
Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust was founded in January 2012, from the predecessor Norfolk & Waveney Mental Health Trust and Suffolk Mental Health Partnership.

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.
