Applications are invited for a 9-session substantive Consultant in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry to work across the Cardiff and Vale University Health Board, based in Cardiff at St David’s Childrens Centre or Llandough Children’s Centre.

The Cardiff and Vale Specialist CAMH Service is a caring multidisciplinary team working within a developing wider system of emotional wellbeing and mental health services.

There is a commitment to a 1 in 18, 2nd on call out-of-hours service across the Cardiff and Vale, Cwm Taf and Swansea Bay areas and the successful candidate would join a supportive consultant peer group both within Cardiff but also this wider area.
