This is an exciting opportunity to lead the development of psychological therapies provision to persons with emotionally unstable personality disorder in the Community Mental Health Teams in Cardiff & the Vale. Working alongside psychiatry psychology and other colleagues, this post is a key role in shaping psychological therapies for personality disorders in Cardiff & Vale services into the 2020s.
We are looking for an experienced clinician and leader, ideally with substantial experience in community working and with complex clinical presentations in Adult Mental Health. Equally important is the ability to work alongside colleagues and with the locality psychologists who will work closely with partners in primary and secondary care, and develop operational solutions to issues such as referral criteria, risk management, and the interfaces with other services. This will require the ability both to develop and manage the existing staff team, and simultaneously promote the service externally. We are looking for an innovative and resilient clinical leader with evidenced training and supervision expertise who can operate with confidence and credibility to develop this post and support further service redesign. Highly developed interpersonal skills and ability to influence and negotiate successfully are essential. In addition, this consultant will play a pivotal role in developing and monitoring the clinical outcomes and impact of the service and will have a flexible approach to changing patterns of service delivery as needed.
