Are you looking for something a bit different? Are you keen to make in important contribution to developing psychological services? Are you keen to advance your career in Psychology?
We are looking forward to working with somebody who can help us develop the psychology service for adults living in the Western Isles. This is an exciting job, and will be hard work, but really stimulating, especially as it will involve all aspects of delivering a psychology service. You will be delivering assessments to a range of patients (across different mental health and learning disabilities specialties) as well as delivering training to multi-disciplinary team colleagues, advising colleagues on clinical governance issues and working closely with NHS Education for Scotland. We are looking for someone who will work well in a multi-disciplinary team context, liaising with members of other disciplines, especially GPs and colleagues in primary care and the voluntary sector. The post requires a broad range of clinical skills, because when working in a remote and rural area, one has fewer options for onward referrals, so it is important to find someone who will strive to find the balance between generalist and specialist roles and will aim to utilise support from mainland colleagues. We are happy to offer candidates flexibility to develop specialisms based on their interests and development needs. Can you see yourself in this role? Please get in touch.
We are hoping to recruit a suitable candidate who is keen to live in Western Isles and enjoy the unique experiences that island life has to offer.. Interested? Why not get in touch?
The main working base is Western Isles Hospital in the town of Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis, though in order to meet the needs of a wide rural community, psychological therapies and services are routinely delivered remotely.
