The post holder will be based at Parklands Hospital, Basingstoke and will become part of a team of consultants working in the Acute Care Team.This inpatient role stands out from other acute psychiatric inpatient roles currently advertised because of the favourable ration of medical time per patient.

They will work alongside another consultant with their own junior doctors who will spend 5 sessions on the ward looking after the remainder of the 6 beds. We have deliberately resourced the ward in this way to ensure quality of care to our patients, to prevent burnout amongst
clinicians, to allow medical teaching and supervision to junior doctors, to maintain turnover, to share tribunal report writing, ensure excellent physical health monitoring, allow medics to contribute to service development and quality improvement and allow an offsite PA per week to be taken by the post-holder.
