This full time post is one of six Speciality Doctor posts within the Directorate of Adult Mental Health and will be based in Treorchy. The postholder will be expected to work at other sites within the Health Board area and may also be required to undertake some community work and visit hospitals outside the Health Board area.

Duty commitments of the Speciality Doctor relate principally to meeting service requirements but the Directorate believes that individual training needs are also extremely important and is proactive in supporting these. Regulations for the employment of Speciality Doctor allow for flexibility in the deployment, location and roistering of available sessions in consultation with the responsible Consultants. While it must be recognised that meeting service requirements is a priority, the Directorate takes the view that as far as possible these issues should be determined in consultation with the individual Speciality Doctor.

This post is within the Cwm Taf Rehabilitation Service led by Dr A Shetty, Dr M Self and Dr R Hailwood. This service provides a range of both inpatient and community-based rehabilitation and recovery services to the adult population for the Cwm Taf University Health Board area.  Office, consulting space and secretarial support is provided at Ysbyty George Thomas.

Preferred candidates will have extensive experience of working in Adult Mental Health, have Part I of the Membership Examination of the Royal College of Psychiatrists (or equivalent/higher qualification) and be eligible for approval under Section 12 of the Mental Health Act. It would be desirable if the post holder had some previous experience of rehabilitation and/or forensic psychiatry. A full clean driving licence is essential as the post holder will be expected to work at various sites geographically distant from the base.
