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.

Job Advert Role Description

Priory Hospital Bristol is part of the Healthcare Division of Priory Group and has 86 beds over eight wards varying from Eating Disorders, Acute Mental Health, Acquired Brain Injury, Huntingdon’s and Dementia and Adult Male Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit.


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 Hospital
Priory Bristol Hospital provides acute adult mental health services, at our stunning Georgian building in Bristol.  Priory Group’s focus on quality improvement, combined with Priory Bristol Hospital’s focus on delivering patient-centred care allow us to continuously evaluate and enhance our performance.   
Priory Bristol Hospital enjoys a stable and established MDT which includes OT, psychology and experienced RMN's.  The hospital offers a range of treatments and interventions including promoting least restrictive practice and patient collaboration in decision making. The service works closely with other Priory Healthcare services within the Private Region enabling and developing supportive care pathways.
 
Our approach
The treatment programmes at Priory Bristol Hospital aim to optimise patient recovery and potential by treating and minimising risk behaviours and by enabling them to develop psychological / emotional, social and occupational skills and resilience.
All interventions aim to help the patient to understand the effect of their behaviour on others, to help them to manage the impact of external triggers on their behaviour and ultimately to promote the concept of recovery. These interventions include:
• Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT)
• Individual and group psychological therapy
• Drug and alcohol programme (ATP)
• Integrative Therapy
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT)
Hypnotherapy
Our structured approach to care explicitly acknowledges and supports the issue of change (or readiness for change) and is essential for successful engagement and treatment.
The Role 
Due to internal moves, we now have a vacancy for a dedicated full-time Consultant Psychiatrist on our male-only acute ward. The service will accept admissions 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, from local NHS and other parts of the United Kingdom. We seek to appoint a highly-motivated Consultant Psychiatrist to complement our existing medical work force. As a Consultant Psychiatrist you would lead a multidisciplinary team of professionals from nursing, clinical psychology, social work and occupational therapy and a Specialty Doctor who will form part of the MDT.
The successful candidate will be joining an expanding and clinically diverse Priory Private Region.  There is strong governance structure within the Region and the successful applicant will be expected to take an active role in service and quality development activities and to participate in governance meetings and Service Line meetings, as necessary. 
Priory Bristol Hospital operates a non-residential medical on call rota and the post holder is expected to participate on the on-call rota.
Full registration with a licence to practise with the GMC is required. For more information, visit www.gmc-uk.org
Those trained in the UK should have evidence of higher specialist training leading to CCT or be within 6 months of confirmed entry from date of interview or eligibility for specialist registration (CESR).
Candidates must have a higher medical qualification (MRCPsych or equivalent).
