Job Description

An outstanding NHS Job opportunity for a motivated and enthusiastic Perinatal Psychiatrist to join a county-wide Perinatal Psychiatry Service. There is a high level of support within the team and the department is part of an NHS Trust that has an excellent record in training and development for specialty doctors with specific training days and development opportunities. 

Established and launched in April 2019, the department became a county-wide service that is led by 2.0 WTE consultant psychiatrists, along with their operational lead. The team receives, on average, 20-25 referrals a week, with the most common source of referrals being from midwives. Self-referrals to the service are also accepted. Referrals are screened and triaged on a daily basis.

The post holder is expected to: 

  • Liaise with GPs, antenatal services, midwives and health visitors to support women being managed in primary care to prevent deterioration.
  • Work in partnership with other mental health teams providing support to women with perinatal mental health disorders.
  • Deliver specialist training for other mental health teams, midwives, GPs, health visitors and others who work with women with perinatal mental health problems.

In addition to a working for a great department, the town you'll be in is a perfect place to relocate, offering an exceptional blend of desirable characteristics. With its rich history, picturesque landscapes, diverse community, excellent educational institutions, and a wide range of leisure options, the area provides an ideal setting for individuals and families seeking a welcoming and fulfilling new home. Its convenient transport links and thriving economy further enhance the appeal, making it a truly perfect choice for relocation!

The Trust has always been recognised as a centre of excellence for mental & health care. They are rated "Good" overall with some areas of "Outstanding" by the CQC. This is truly an exciting time for you to come and work for them!

This is a great opportunity for overseas Specialty Doctors who want to establish themselves in the NHS, and grow their consultant career. The post is suitable for candidates holding specialisation in the EEA, or for experienced IMGs looking to complete CESR.
