Norfolk & Suffolk Foundation NHS Trust – Eating Disorders Pathway
8b Senior Clinical Psychologist - Adult Eating Disorders
£53,168 to £62,001 a year
We have an exciting opportunity to join us as in a full-time role in our cross-county pathway. This is a new post, developed at a time when the pathway teams are expanding, both to meet the demands of the service, broaden the clinical expertise in our treatment offer and to support the ongoing alignment of our new model of working cross the county of Suffolk. The post is working from bases in both East and West Suffolk (Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds), although you may be required to attend other sites as part of your role.
This is an opportunity for you to be part of an established pathway but to have the added benefit of making a significant impact on the shape of the service for the future. The pathway is undertaking significant development with the expansion of our teams with newly commissioned monies and development of pathways to include additional areas of practice including FREED, the use of ROMS, and our local MARSIPAN pathways.
You will ensure that systems are in place and working effectively for the clinical and professional supervision and support of the other psychologists within the pathway and will work autonomously within professional guidelines and exercise responsibility for the systematic governance of psychological practice within the team.
As a major requirement of the job, you will conduct training in specialist psychotherapies for staff as well as offering clinical supervision to all grades of staff. You will support the Service Manager/Clinical Lead and senior clinical team in providing clinical leadership and advice within the eating disorders pathway. This may include offering senior clinical cover for the service, responding to queries or FOI requests, undertaking complaints and serious incident investigations and 1:1 management supervision.
We have a strong culture of research and a continuous drive for improving quality, which you will be expected to lead on within the service and contribute to the running of the service and to lead on specific areas of clinical relevance.
