At St Andrew’s Healthcare, we are focused on building our reputation for high quality care and treatment for patients with histories of offending and other risk behaviours. St Andrews is currently undergoing a major transformation to become a world leader in Value-Based Healthcare. As part of that programme we have established 15 Integrated Practice Units (IPU’s) which will focus on improving patient outcomes, of which Mansfield is a part.
The Autistic Spectrum Disorder and Intellectual Disability IPU in Mansfield have an exciting opportunity for the post holder to develop and strengthen experience working with patients in secure care settings and the chance to develop research and clinical ideas. This IPU is forward-thinking, open to new ideas and a holistic approach is taken to patient care and treatment. We take a psychologically informed approach to working with our men within the context of very likely trauma experiences.
If you would like to be part of working with an innovative and dynamic team; be able to develop and deliver up to date treatments; and work in a supportive environment then this is the place for you! This will be a personally and professionally rewarding role. The post-holder will be able to undertake non-clinical activities of interest e.g. research, teaching, governance and management – in an innovative way, and influence the direction of services in order for them to attain the best outcomes for our patients.
You will lead a multi-disciplinary team and oversee the management of patients with complex mental disorders as well as an ASD or ID diagnosis. You will be able to promote innovation and improvement of services and there will also be a strong research and teaching element to the role. With scope to develop your specialist interests and grow your remit and responsibilities, we will actively encourage you to be a leader nationally in mental health and influence the future direction of services.
You will have MRCPsych or equivalent, a CCT in Learning Disability, Forensic Psychiatry or General Adult Psychiatry.
A top 20 UK charity, St Andrew’s is a unique provider of specialist care in mental health, learning disability, autistic spectrum disorders and neurological conditions. We aspire to deliver truly world class, holistic services within our outstanding, modern facilities. Our independence means we can always put service users’ interests at the heart of decision making, while re-investing surpluses in frontline services.
