Due to the ongoing expansion of the Department of Clinical Health Psychology at Royal Cornwall Hospital Trust (RCHT) an exciting opportunity has arisen to recruit a Band 8a Clinical Health Psychologist to clinically lead the Paediatric Psychology Diabetes service line within RCHT. This is a brilliant opportunity to work closely with the Paediatric Diabetes service and wider Child Health Department within the Women, Children’s and Sexual Health Care Group to shape psychological provision for patients, families and staff.
We are a forward thinking department who are looking for a passionate clinical health psychologist who is committed to working at RCHT and who is dedicated to leadership to uphold Trust and Departmental values of compassionate and safe care; trust and respect; inspiration and innovation; working together; pride and achievement. We seek to embody these values and are fully engaged in the RCHT “Journey to Brilliant” organisational development programme.
The Department of Clinical Health Psychology delivers psychological care across a range of RCHT pathways including Bariatric Surgery, Pain Management, Breast Surgery, Neuropsychology and Adult Cystic Fibrosis. We work closely with our partner services who deliver psychological care for patients with Cancer and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
The post holder will benefit from being part of a vibrant Clinical Health Psychology Department with line management being held by the Consultant Clinical Lead Psychologist. People and professional development is a core principle in the Department and support will be provided to ensure the success of service development. The Clinical Health Psychology Department uses Clinical Governance as an organising principle to deliver safe, evidence based, high quality care.
The successful applicant will be expected to work effectively as an integrated member of the multi-disciplinary team (MDT) and work in close collaboration with Doctors, Nurses, Allied Health Professionals, Administration Staff and Operational Managers.
Successful applicants will be providing consultation to the Paediatric Diabetes MDT in addition to assessment and intervention for patients and families represented in this service line. This could include group work as well as individual work, team consultation, inpatient and outpatient work as the need arises.
This is a varied and exciting position with the opportunity to develop leadership and clinical health psychology skills in a positive, proactive and supportive Clinical Health Psychology Department.
