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.

Priory North operates a consultant-led medical model, with manageable patient caseloads and plentiful support from either Specialty Doctors or Advanced Practitioners/Nurse Prescribers.  The focus is on high quality expert psychiatric care delivered to the wards by consultants who are specifically trained and skilled in the models of care, and who are clinical leaders for values, ethics, and innovation.  The medical team across the North Region is cohesive and diverse and is evolving to work as a functional problem-solving department, despite the geographical distance between sites.  There is a strong medical presence in governance and at Regional SMT level, which supports medical staff at site.  The successful applicant will be joining an expanding and exciting team of skilled medical staff who are committed to quality improvement, personal and professional development, and enjoyable working lives.

The Specialty Doctor is part of, and provides support to, a multidisciplinary team that aspires to provide excellent bespoke care to enable our patients to fulfil their recovery goals and work towards discharge to the life they want.  The Specialty Doctor is responsible for the day to day care of patients in their allocated caseload, reporting to the Consultant Forensic psychiatrist, who is supervising their work.  The Specialty Doctor has a key role in supporting the team to provide evidence-based treatment with the patient at the centre of the team’s approach.   The medical model of care is a consultant-led service.  This post is a Forensic Psychiatry Specialty Doctor post for the two 14-bed male low secure wards at Priory Hospital Lincolnshire.  A full time Consultant Forensic Psychiatrists works alongside this post.

The successful applicant will join an established MDT on the unit, which includes a psychologist, an OT, and a Consultant Forensic Psychiatrists. The maximum caseload is 28, and this is consistent with consultant-led specialist service with Specialty Doctor support.

The successful candidate will be joining a stable and well-run site, which has strong governance.  The successful applicant will be expected to take an active role in service and quality development and to participate in the weekly doctors’ meeting (held at Calverton Hill Hospital).  The successful candidate will have an interest in working in a forensic environment in a male rehabilitation service, as well as a demonstrable commitment to innovation, evidence-based interventions, multi-professional working and service-user involvement.
