Norfolk and Waveney Early Intervention in Psychosis Services
We are looking for two committed and enthusiastic Clinical Psychologists to work in the Early Intervention in Psychosis (EIP) service in Norfolk. EIP Norfolk spans three different clinical teams, including Norwich, Great Yarmouth and King’s Lynn.
Successful applicants will provide NICE-recommended psychological assessment and treatment for people with psychosis and their families and carers. There is an expectation that applicants will have training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for psychosis (CBTp) and Behavioural Family Therapy (BFT), or are prepared to undertake training to deliver these interventions. Please note that CBTp training is offered at a university in London and weekly travel will be required.
EIP Norfolk has undergone significant expansion over the last three years following increased funding from NHS England for the Access and Waiting Time Standard. In addition to providing NICE recommended assessment and treatment, the post holders will form an integral part of multi-disciplinary teams and will be responsible for team formulation, supervision and consultation, training and clinical leadership.
This is an exciting time for EIP in Norfolk as we work towards service accreditation in line with national standards. Successful candidates will also have the opportunity to be involved in team and service development and completion of routine audits. We are a research active service with regular opportunities to get involved in national trials and local projects. The service also has clinical and research links with the University of East Anglia (UEA) Doctoral Programme in Clinical Psychology.
Due to EIP Norfolk being made up of different teams the advertised posts may involve some travel between teams. However, a clinical base and working pattern will be agreed with successful candidates. Current Clinical Psychology trainees due to qualify in autumn 2019 are welcome to apply. A preceptorship programme starting at Band 7 and progressing to Band 8a after 18 months will be offered if recently qualified applicants are successful at interview.
If you have any questions or you wish to discuss the advertised posts in more detail, please contact Dr Dave Heavens (Clinical Psychologist) on 01603 974682 or 07552 008106.
We will provide you with a range of benefits when you decide to work for us, including:
We recruit by a fair, open and equal process, C.V's will not be accepted. Please Click apply to start your candidate experience with NSFT TODAY!
EQUAL OPPORTUNITIESApart from its legal duties in relation to equality and diversity, the Trust recognises and actively promotes the benefits of a diverse workforce and is committed to treating all employees with dignity and respect regardless of race, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation, religion or belief. Additionally, people with disabilities that fall under the Two Ticks - Guaranteed Interview Scheme will be offered an interview providing they meet the minimum criteria for the post (outlined in the Person Specification). 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.
