One of the UK’s leading mental health care providers is now looking for a Consultant Psychiatrist to join them at their specialist mental health hospital just outside Southampton.

The group is a national leader in independent mental health and social care, offering high-quality inpatient, outpatient, aftercare, and residential services for mental health conditions (including ED and CAMHS), addictions treatment, and supported living for individuals with needs associated with mental illness, neurocognitive impairments, or ASD and/or learning disabilities.

Their Southampton hospital is a dynamic inpatient service supporting the recovery of adults experiencing acute mental illness, including schizophrenia, depression, and personality disorders with associated needs, as well as adults diagnosed with an eating disorder or who have presented with ED symptoms.
