We are looking for an enthusiastic and dynamic consultant to join and lead our Horizon (generic) CAMHS team. You will have experienced in managing ADHD and taking a lead in this area. You will have a passion for working with young people in a deprived area and the challenges that this might bring. We have been undergoing some changes within Lewisham CAMHS, merging 2 clinical teams to form 1 generic team and implemented a form of CAPA to help with patient flow. You will help lead this dynamic team and be able to problem solve with staff and senior management team some of the difficulties that present. You will be expected to contribute to the teaching (to post graduates / trainees as well as undergraduates that are often on placement here). This role has arisen due to additional funding for other roles including crisis care and a CCG-role. We will be looking to advertise this post substantively very shortly. For this reason this will be a fixed term locum for 6 months.
This post is based in the beautiful and award-winning Kaleidoscope Centre in Catford (just 7 minutes on the train from the Maudsley, Denmark Hill) and connections to DLR and Thameslink.
