Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust provides specialist inpatient and community mental health, learning disabilities, addiction and acquired brain injury services for the people of Liverpool, Sefton and Kirkby, Merseyside. We also provide community physical health services in Liverpool, Sefton, secure mental health services for the North West of England, the West Midlands and Wales and specialist learning disability services across Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Cheshire and Merseyside.

We work closely with service users, carers and partner organisations; we have been able to make real improvements to our diverse range of services, from health and social care, right through to high secure provision. This passion to improve has been recognised by the CQC who have recently rated us “Good”.

Mersey Care’s vision and values of Continuous Improvement, Accountability, Respect, Enthusiasm and Support (CARES) drive our organisation and the way we work together to deliver services. Applicants will be expected to demonstrate, during recruitment and any subsequent employment with the Trust, that their behaviour supports our values.

The CQC stated “It was clear that most staff across the organisation understood, and were committed to, the vision and values of the organisation. These were well communicated and the work to win both hearts and minds was apparent”.

We take positive action to support disadvantaged groups and also particularly encourage applications from BAME, disabled and LGBT people that are under-represented in our workforce. Furthermore we welcome applications from reservists and ex-armed forces as we recognise the benefits of the values, skills, training and experience that they bring to their work with us. We encourage all applicants to share their equality information with us.

Flexible working requests will be considered for all roles.

Applications are invited for a full-time (10PAs + 1 additional programmed activity for Direct Clinical Care) Consultant Psychiatrist to join Kirkby Community Mental Health Team for adults of working age.

If successful in your application for this replacement full time post (10 PAs), you will join a dynamic and dedicated multi-disciplinary team delivering high quality assessment and treatment of for adults with psychosis and other severe mental illnesses referred from linked general practices from the Kirkby area.

This is an exciting time to be joining adult mental health services with the implementation of a new clinical model that is already yielding improvements in care throughout the pathway, supported by more effective team working with primary care and adult inpatient acute care colleagues.

Mersey Care NHS FT is an innovative well led Trust, with an aspiration of Perfect Care for all of its service users, delivered through a supportive “Just Culture” environment for staff. For Consultant Psychiatrists it offers excellent opportunities for professional development, research and medical management roles. As a Global Digital Exemplar Mersey Care is developing digital applications to support the implementation of its 'Zero Suicide Policy' and the use of predictive analytics in mental health which will assist clinicians with their decision making and risk prioritisation.

We look forward to hearing from applicants with a passion for supporting colleagues with their professional expertise and leadership qualities, and making contributions to service developments in the field of Adult Psychiatry.
