Job Advert Role Description

Ready for the recognition and rewards you deserve?
We don’t just talk about putting employees first. We know that Priory wouldn’t exist without their combined energy, expertise and effort.  So we invest heavily in training, provide first-class support, promote collaborative teamwork and give everyone on our team the opportunities and resources to achieve their full potential.

The Priory Highbank Centre provides specialist slow stream rehabilitation  services to adults and children with brain injury and complex mental health difficulties and is part of the Priory Group.

The Walmersley Unit is a 19-bedded unit for patients aged 16+. It is a team-led, inpatient facility providing interdisciplinary team assessment and rehabilitation. The unit facilitates rehabilitation for a range of patients, from low awareness to the more independent. The service is lead by a Consultant physician specialising in Neuro-Rehabilitation.

Robinson House is a 10 bedded male Mental Health Rehabilitation Unit. It caters for individuals with complex psychiatric conditions (often with co-morbid physical health conditions). The service has a full MDT and is led by a Consultant Psychiatrist.

The Specialty Doctor is based at The Priory Highbank Centre. There is no On-Call commitment.

The Specialty Doctor will provide day-to-day medical input on the units under the supervision of the relevant Consultant.

A large component of the duties are around the physical wellbeing of patients. The post is likely to be attractive to someone from a General Medical (or GP background) or someone from a Psychiatry background with experience and interest in aspects of General Medicine.

We are aware that this post may be attractive to NHS doctors who are stepping out of / or seeking to join General Medical postgraduate training. We would therefore be willing to consider employing on a fixed term employment as well as full time permanent as this may fit with the candidates career path.
