Consultant Medical Psychotherapist with the Norwich Youth Service – 1 Post

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Medical Psychotherapist to join an existing team working within the Youth Service in Norwich. This friendly and supportive team follows the principles of recovery & social inclusion and works within an existing culture of providing individual and group-based psychotherapy. The role will also entail the role of Psychotherapy tutor for NSFT and building on the existing work of the existing Tutor who is due to retire.

The Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust is active in research and has a strong educational reputation for teaching medical students and a well-established training programme for junior and senior trainees. There are developments in the provision of Psychotherapy experience to trainees with plans afoot to expand trainee mentoring and Balint Groups to medical students.

The post holder will have a crucial role to play in developing and enhancing the care provided to young people with complex mental health needs. The successful applicant will work alongside skilled and professional multidisciplinary teams.

The city of Norwich combines the advantages of a vibrant university city with easy access to the rolling countryside of Norfolk and Suffolk. There are many pleasant villages and small towns nearby that will provide a suitable home. The coastal strip has some of the sandiest beaches in the country, boasting the least annual rainfall in Great Britain.

There are good rail and road links, making it possible to reach central London, Cambridge and Stansted Airport in less than 2 hours. Norwich was voted one of the best places to live in the country.

The Trust is also able to offer the successful candidate a £10,000 recruitment premia and up to £5000 for relocation expenses.
