Job Advert Location Description

Priory Woking and Lifeworks (Old Woking) are geographically close to each other and provide private addictions and eating disorder services (inpatients and day patients).

Priory Woking additionally offers private acute mental health services, with some of these beds spot purchased by the NHS when they have no beds available within their Trust. Both hospitals run extensive private outpatient clinics, and Priory Woking has a well resourced day care treatment service. The Wellbeing Centre in Oxford offers a variety of psychiatry and therapy services as outpatients for CAMHS and adults.

Job Advert Role Description

We are seeking a Medical Director who will be part of the Senior Management Team based at Priory Woking, to oversee the medical services at Priory Woking, Lifeworks and Oxford Wellbeing Centre.

You will have managerial responsibilities for the doctors employed within the hospitals, and will be skilful in supporting and guiding the visiting consultants who are not directly employed by Priory. Experience of private practice preferred, but not essential. In addition to the management responsibilities, you will carry a clinical caseload of inpatients and will also run your own private outpatient clinics at Priory Woking.
