The Cheshire & Wirral Partnership NHS Trust provides comprehensive learning disability services across Cheshire and Wirral. The learning disability service has excellent governance structures. Our psychology services are organised so as to have locality management coupled with parallel professional systems for support and supervision. Psychology is a valued and respected component of a supportive and friendly community team in West Cheshire

This post offers an exciting opportunity to work within the Intensive Support Function of the CLDT - Cheshire West & Chester. The post is focused on working with people whose behaviour challenges services, is complex and puts them at risk of placement breakdown and admission to hospital. The post holder will work closely with the specialist nurse and other health professionals to support this client group to stay out of hospital, be discharged promptly and safely, and support the transition of out of area clients to return to their local area. We are committed to person centred care and supporting people to live locally and to stay out of hospital.

The post holder will be involved in broader service and professional issues, such as training and research. We require a practitioner who can bring their experience and are able to respond to the transforming care agenda and have the ability to provide clinical leadership alongside the MDT in relation to challenging behaviour and other presenting psychological needs and problems.

 We are confident that we can support ongoing professional development that is sensitive to the needs of the individual and their interests. We would be very happy to receive applications and interest from experienced psychologists.
