The Cumbria Adult Community Learning Disabilities Service are looking to appoint a clinical psychologist based three days in Barrow-in-Furness and two days in Workington.
They are looking for a highly motivated individual with a desire to develop both clinical and leadership skills under the supervision of experienced senior clinicians and committed to collaborative team and inter-agency working. The person appointed will join a service in which clinical psychology has played a key role in shaping and leading clinical and service development.
The Learning Disabilities Service provides specialist clinical pathways for Forensic Services, Challenging Behaviour, Mental Health and Physical Health. It also provides advice, consultation and training to other services and agencies. Clinical psychologists contribute across all of these areas; and you will have the opportunity to discuss the development of specialist clinical interests. We regularly take trainees from the Lancaster and Newcastle training courses; and employ assistant psychologists. We also have an established and nationally recognised research programme and you will have the opportunity to contribute to established programmes and/or develop your own research interests.
Cumbria is a rural area and includes the Lake District National Park; working in Cumbria offers opportunity for a great quality of life.
