Overview

If you are an enthusiastic passionate doctor who is looking for a job with a right balance of challenge and flexibility, look no further. You will be working alongside a group of experienced and highly motivated clinicians who will support you wherever you are in your career journey. We have established processes and a greatly supportive Leadership team enabling you to develop further. We are seeking a Locum Consultant Psychiatrist to join the Fareham & Gosport CAMHS Team. This vacancy has arisen due to a voluntary resignation and we regard this as an opportune moment to develop the functioning of the team.

This locum post is a fantastic career development opportunity and is particularly suitable for SAS doctors who are in the process of applying for the Certificate of Eligibility for Specialist Registration and also for Specialty trainees who are in the final year of their training who would like to consider a Fixed term Contract before seeking a Substantive position. This post completes the medical establishment of the team in the interim, whilst substantive recruitment can be achieved in order to fulfil the minimum of 1.8 whole time equivalent Consultant Psychiatrists for the Fareham and Gosport area.

This post is one example of the commitment of the Trust to develop better provision and capacity for Fareham and Gosport CAMHS and the families and carers using the service in challenging times.

Our organisation has been applauded for embracing the digital technology in our Business continuity plan during the pandemic. We have set up a range of remote working possibilities giving the clinical team utmost flexibility to work safely and effectively during this time. There are plentiful opportunities to enrich and develop your career within the service. The Leadership team is very supportive and encourage all clinicians to have a flexible job plan so that a good work-life balance can be achieved.

Hampshire is a beautiful county with coastal areas and stunning countryside. The lovely Test and Meon Valleys dissect the South Downs that rise from the Cathedral city of Winchester and head eastwards. England’s largest intact area of ancient woodland, the New Forest is tucked in the western corner of the county and is a wild and special place. As well as picture book villages, there are some super small towns and the large coastal cities of Southampton and Portsmouth provide the annual ‘Boat Show’ and ferry crossings to the continent or nearby Isle of Wight. Education in Hampshire is good with state schools outside the two big coastal cities doing better than the national average and significantly so in the most favoured catchments. There is a range of independent schools including the Academically renowned Portsmouth Grammar School at Portsmouth.
