  • Develop risk assessment and management plans in conjunction with the Multidisciplinary team, service user, carers and other involved agencies and facilitate maximum empowerment of the service user and carer in developing informed choice of treatment interventions.
  • Proactively liaise with other mental health teams and primary care to ensure continuity of care and appropriate information sharing.

Minimum requirements for the Consultant Psychiatrist General Adult role is:

  • 4 years psychiatry experience
  • MRCPsych or equivalent.
  • Approved under Section 12(2) of the Mental Health Act (1983).
  • Obtained inclusion on the Specialist Register; or within six months of the award of a Certificate of Completion of Specialist Training (CCST) in General Adult Psychiatry; or eligible for inclusion on the Specialist Register.
