An exciting opportunity for a Lead Consultant Practitioner / Clinical Psychologist (Band 8c) has arisen in the Welsh Neuropsychiatry Service within Cardiff and the Vale University Health Board. The post holder will join an established specialist multi-disciplinary service for adults with Acquired Brain Injury with significant neuropsychiatric difficulties and presenting with neuro-behavioural / neurorehabilitation needs.

The Service, based at Llandough Hospital, is the only one of its kind in Wales and the post holder will contribute to service development and delivery and be a key member of the multi-disciplinary team alongside colleagues from Therapies, Nursing and Neuropsychiatry disciplines.

Psychological skills and expertise are highly valued within our services. There is an opportunity for leading on psychological and neuropsychological care and brain injury rehabilitation in an inpatient and day/community setting, embedding formulation-led approaches, developing positive behaviour support plans, direct patient and family work, input into care networks, consultancy, and service improvement and contributing to the ongoing development of staff skills and knowledge, research/audit.

The post-holder will hold a Postgraduate Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (or its equivalent) and to be a HCPC Registered Practitioner Psychologist. Extensive and demonstrable experience of clinical neuropsychology and applying psychology in mental health settings is essential.  

With the relocation of Neurorehabilitation Services to the same site at Llandough Hospital during 2021, this is an exciting time to join Cardiff and Vale UHB. There is an active professional network for clinical psychologists and neuropsychology across South Wales.

The post sits within the Mental Health Services and Neuropsychiatry Directorate and you will have direct line management responsible for some staff and in turn will be supported and line managed by the Consultant Psychologist and Head of Service.

You will be well supported to develop your professional, leadership and clinical skills via CPD opportunities.  Visits are most welcome. Please contact Gwen Phillips or Clare Quinn
