We are seeking a committed senior clinical psychologist with a keen interest in chronic pain. If you are looking for an opportunity to be part of a well established and reputable clinical and research centre at the cutting edge of clinical health psychology we would like to hear from you. Our department is implementing a number of exciting and novel service developments (including an online pain management programme). The INPUT service is a friendly unit, where psychologists are valued for the contribution they make to the multidisciplinary team; they work closely with pain consultants, clinical nurse specialists, physiotherapists and occupational therapists. As a senior member of the team you will have responsibility for psychological assessment, therapy and management of patients with ongoing pain as well as the chance to supervise Band 5-7 psychologists and guide other professionals in the application of psychological models. This includes involvement in specialist clinics such including neuromodulation and pelvic pain. You would be involved in leading and delivering group pain management programmes based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy as well as carry out individual work. In addition you will have a key role in delivering psychological interventions alongside medical procedures such as Neuromodulation. Our unit has strong research and training links with the Institute of Psychiatry and regularly provides placements for trainee clinical psychologists. The department plays a key role in training health professionals from varied backgrounds and frequently hosts visitors from the UK and overseas.
You will have a keen interest in psychology applied to physical health, and will ideally have some experience in working with chronic health conditions. Further training in psychological models of therapy and experience in supervision and consultation is desirable. There is a commitment in the team to research, audit and evaluation work, and you would input into the process of audit and service development. There are eight clinical psychologists and an assistant psychologist based within the multidisciplinary unit. You will have opportunities to link up with other psychologists working within the Trust and will be encouraged to network with members of the Faculty of Clinical Health Psychology. Regular CPD events are held within the Trust and the service. This is a well-supported position with ready access to individual and peer supervision.
