CONSULTANT Adult Psychiatrist
South Gwynedd, Meirionydd
Full time (10 Sessions)

Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board is looking for an enthusiastic individual to work as a Community Consultant Psychiatrist in the North Wales area.

The post holder will be responsible for the day to day management of patients from the South Gwynedd (Meirionnydd) area, ensuring that patients are seen in a timely manner, appropriate to their needs. The post holders will be expected to deliver a service to patients under both secondary care CMHT and primary care services where appropriate.

The service will deliver a needs led service and therefore the post holders will be expected to manage those above 65 until such time as their needs are more appropriately met by the Older Persons Mental Health Services (transition arrangements are under review).
The CMHT for South Gwynedd has an overall caseload of 350. It is expected that the post holder will see patients when required by the care coordinator and act as care coordinator for a small case load.

The post holder will be based with the CMHT and work with the integrated/single line team manager to ensure clinical leadership of the multi-disciplinary team. The post holder will assist with clinical supervision of the team ensuring that robust management plans are in place for those in whom it is warranted. This will be done as part of a meeting structure where the most clinically complex patients are discussed and reviewed with the whole team. It is anticipated that the post holder will assist in training of team members in clinical matters.

For a full list of duties, please see job description.

South Gwynedd is superbly located in North Wales, an area of outstanding natural beauty, within easy reach of Chester, Liverpool & Manchester.

You are required to be on the Specialist Register, have CCT or recognised equivalent, or be within 6 months of obtaining it at the time of interview.

The successful candidates will be appointed to the amended Welsh Consultant Contract.
