Applications are invited for a 0.3 wte (12 hours) post of Consultant Psychiatrist within the Argyll and Bute CAMHS service based in Dunoon, which has become available due to service redesign.

The successful applicant will provide clinical leadership within the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) alongside the Senior Manager and Clinical Lead for CAMHS and other senior members of the team, deliver high quality clinical care and promote a multi-disciplinary and multi-agency approach to the delivery of care.

This post will be based in the rural town of Dunoon and primarily serve the remote areas of Cowal and the island of Bute, but responsibility for Psychiatric cover across Argyll and Bute will be shared with the 1.0wte Psychiatrist who predominantly covers clinics held in Lochgilphead, Oban, Campbeltown and Helensburgh. Site provision to the rural areas is under review and we are keen to further develop the use of teleconference facilities which we have used to significant effect during Covid lockdown to improve the quality and accessibility of the service to our remote and island communities. Active engagement in local, regional and national CPD will be expected.

Argyll and Bute offers unparalleled opportunities for outdoor pursuits and an excellent quality of life. Argyll and Bute is a wonderful place to live and work, and an ideal place to raise a family, with local schooling of very high standards.

Successful candidates must be on the General Medical Council Specialist Register with a Licence to Practice or within 6 months of obtaining CCT at time of interview.

Informal enquiries should be made to: Brian Reid, Service Manager (01586 559072 or 07768697810).

Closing date for applications: 20th August 2020
