COVID-19 Vacancy Highly Specialist Clinical Psychologist

Band 8a

We are looking for an enthusiastic Clinical Psychologist to contribute to the staff support and adult clinical psychology service to the Clinical Health Psychology Department at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King’s Lynn. The successful candidate needs to have demonstrated experience working with people with physical health problems and will provide psychological assessments, treatments and advice on management of complex issues for this patient group.

Clinical Psychology is highly valued at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. This post has been developed to help provide staff support in the current pandemic. There will be direct staff support and some work to ‘back fill’ staff already providing staff support.

The post holder will be a full member of the department and will contribute to the development of a strong and highly focussed department of Clinical Health Psychology.

The post holder will join other clinical psychologists who already work within this service, as well as psychologist colleagues in a range of specialties across physical health, applying a variety of therapeutic approaches. There will be ample opportunity for professional development and innovation. Band 7 clinical psychologists will be considered for this post. Part-time working will also be considered.

The Queen Elizabeth Hospital King’s Lynn NHS Foundation Trust is located on the outskirts of King’s Lynn. The surrounding area is predominantly rural, with local areas of outstanding natural beauty and the North Norfolk coastline nearby. There are good rail links to Cambridge (45 minutes) and London (95 minutes). The hospital is easily accessible from the outskirts of Norwich for those who wish to live nearer a city.
