We are excited to present a fantastic opportunity for an experienced Clinical Psychologist to join our dedicated team at Ivetsey Bank Hospital on a permanent, full-time basis.

Located in Staffordshire, Ivetsey Bank Hospital is a Tier 4 Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CAMHS) facility offering specialised, intensive inpatient care and support to children and young people with severe, enduring, and complex mental health conditions.

We are dedicated to providing caring, supportive, recovery-focused treatment and we achieve this by working together with our young people, their families and other professionals. Our hospital is part of the wider ACG Mental Health Network and a key partner in the West Midlands CAMHS Provider Collaborative, led by Birmingham... Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust.

We prioritise a clinically led model of care, developed in consultation with doctors, nurses, psychologists, therapists, social workers, and other experts in the field, alongside feedback from our young people and their families. Our approach is person-centred, tailored to the unique needs, hopes and challenges of each individual, and we utilise evidence-based practices to inform our treatment and support strategies.

We have our own Ofsted registered school on site so our young people can continue with their education while receiving treatment, provided they are well enough to attend.

There are three separate units within our hospital grounds, each supported by its own dedicated Consultant-led Multi-Disciplinary Team, comprised of experts in the field of child and adolescent mental health:
• Wedgwood: Eating Disorders Service
• Hartley: Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit
• Thorneycroft: General Adolescent Service

Join our team at Ivetsey Bank Hospital and be part of a compassionate service, dedicated to supporting the mental health and well-being of young individuals. Apply now to make a difference!
