Consultant Psychiatrist, Forensic Outreach & Liaison Service
Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust
This job is now closed
Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust is a General Medical Council (GMC) Sponsor employer.
This opportunity is open to UK based and International Consultants.
This Post is for a Consultant Psychiatrist responsible for providing clinical input and leadership to Forensic Outreach and Liaison Services - Community Forensic Team Trust-Wide based at Unither House, Chertsey, working alongside a multidisciplinary team in line with New Ways of Working.
This vacancy is a brand new role, and the post-holder will provide supervision of conditionally discharged restricted patients residing in Surrey who continue to need support and care from Forensic Mental Health Services, either because they have been recently released from a secure hospital or because there is instability in their clinical condition and/or risk factors (risk to others). Such patients may have been discharged from secure hospitals within the KSS region or elsewhere, including patients treated in area secure hospitals, but - occasionally - will be patients who have had no prior connection to Surrey.
Main duties of the job
Assume consultant psychiatrist responsibility ("clinical supervisor" responsibility where defined by the Mental Health Act) for patients on the team caseload, conduct clinical interviews and attend professionals' meetings, including six monthly Care Programme Approach (CPA) review sessions, contributing to the care plan and leading on clinical risk assessment and management, liaising with and reporting to the Ministry of Justice Mental Health Casework Section for Conditionally Discharged Restricted Patients.
Provide forensic psychiatry expertise to support Community Mental Health Team consultant psychiatrists for their patients in a consultancy role, contributing to clinical/risk assessment and management.
Accept referrals to assess patients in the community and for those in local psychiatric hospitals (acute and rehabilitation, adult and older adult admissions), where admission to a secure psychiatric hospital does not appear to be appropriate.
