PR15114-Consultant in General Adult Psychiatry

NHS Grampian

This vacancy is no longer advertised
This is a new Consultant post arising from a re-design following retirement of a member of senior medical staff.

This post is based at Dr Gray's Hospital, Elgin, a modern District General Hospital with a range of specialties and diagnostic facilities. One of the attractions of working in Moray is a tradition of close working with colleagues from General Practice and the local authority. Since April 2016 this has been formalised as an Integrated Joint Board. The post is to provide Consultant input to the east Moray catchment area which includes a large swathe of rural Speyside, coastal villages and a sector of Elgin City. This team also has two other Consultants in General Adult Psychiatry and the exact catchment area for this post will be negotiated depending on geographic preference and whether applying as a full time or part time applicant.

The Royal Burgh of Elgin thrives as a centre of administration, education, tourism and trade with agricultural, service and textile industries. Situated in Scotland's Castle and Whisky country, the area offers a wide range of recreational activities such as golf, fishing, hill walking, surfing, canoeing, cycling, horse riding and winter sports. This is an opportunity to live and work in a beautiful part of Scotland that offers a great quality of life and has good transport links with the rest of the UK.

The postholder will be expected to contribute to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching. The postholder will be expected to register with the Continuing Professional Development Programme of the Royal College of Psychiatrists for which all costs will be met by NHS Grampian. There are opportunities for research and close links exist between the Service and the Departments of Mental Health and Psychology of the University of Aberdeen. The postholder will be expected to contribute to audit and other elements of clinical governance. A detailed job plan will be agreed with the successful candidate at the time of appointment to meet service needs, taking account of the experience, skills and interests of the candidate and how they can best be used within the consultant team. The post holder will be expected to engage in annual appraisal towards revalidation.

The post is advertised as whole time. Candidates unable to work whole time for personal reasons will be eligible to be considered for the post and, if appointed, an appropriately amended job description will be agreed.

Full registration with a licence to practise with the GMC is required. For more information visit
