Locum Appointment for Service (LAS) CT1-3 level in Community Psychiatry 1 post, Harrow, North West London


We are seeking to appoint a bright and enthusiastic doctor for a fixed-term locum appointment for service (LAS) at CT1-3 level in our community mental health team.

The post is based at Bentley House, and is supervised by Dr Michael Akeju. Harrow mental health services are a popular choice on the local core psychiatry and GP training rotations and this post has arisen due to a short-notice vacancy in the rotational training scheme.

The post starts in March 2021 until Tue 3rd August 2021

The postholder will be responsible for new and follow-up clinic appointments, and multidisciplinary work with colleagues. There are some opportunities for remote working given the move to virtual appointments.

We are committed to providing suitable opportunities for training and personal development. Although a LAS post is not approved for postgraduate specialist training, the postholder will be encouraged to attend the local academic programme and will have opportunities for study leave and other personal development according to training needs.

There will be an expectation for the successful candidate to join the resident doctor after hours on-call rota.

The salary is the advert is just basic salary without the on-call elements added as it is yet to be confirmed.


For more information and to arrange a call to discuss the opportunities, please contact Dr Michael Akeju, clinical supervisor, and Dr Alex Thomson, local tutor, on [email protected] and [email protected]
