An opportunity has arisen for suitably qualified Clinical Psychologists to join our well established Core Pathway team. This is part of the Kirklees and Calderdale Business Delivery Unit. The Trust transformed services 2 years ago to ensure we continue to meet local need, remain high quality and above all, improve the patient journey. As a result we are in the exciting position of having well-established fully integrated Multi-disciplinary pathways to serve our service users.
The Core pathway provides a holistic service to people with a less complex package of care with the goal of assisting people to achieve their maximum level of functioning. The Core pathway service users may only require short-term mental health interventions, or may require longer-term contact with mental health services for monitoring of their mental health during a period of stability. The psychological input to this client group spans a range of therapeutic modalities and can range from brief consultation and/or assessment, through to brief, medium term, and some longer term though time-limited group and individual therapies. The team is comprised of Community Psychiatric Nurses, Social Worker’s, Clinical Psychologists, Occupational Therapists, Psychological therapists and Psychiatrists. The Core Pathway also includes the Wellbeing treatment team. They manage Service users requiring long term condition management and will ideally have their needs met within the well-being function of the core pathway. The Wellbeing treatment team is comprised of experienced Medical staff, Registered Mental Health Nurses, Health Care Support Workers, with support from Pharmacy personnel and Psychiatry.
We are particularly looking for individuals who are innovative, flexible and creative who have experience of working with adults with complex psychological problems (including psychosis) in a secondary care mental health setting and are able to work in a solution focused way. You should be committed to working collaboratively with other disciplines to develop and support integrated packages of care. All applicants should be eligible for chartered status with the BPS and membership of the Division of Clinical Psychology as well as being registered through the HCPC as a Clinical Psychologist.
We are a collaborative, committed and supportive BDU with priority being given to practitioners through professional support, clinical supervision, line management and continuing professional development. The successful candidates will have the opportunity to contribute to the development of the new service in many ways.
We run a preceptorship programme so would be happy to receive applications from band 7 clinical psychologists looking for the opportunity for career development. We would also consider applications from trainees hoping to qualify this year.
We would be happy to further discuss the posts either on the phone, email or in person. For informal enquiries please contact either: Dr.Christine Telford or Dr.Jurga Paserpskyte on 01924 316600.
