Clinical Psychologist - Bariatric Surgery Band 8a

Posted 18 September by NHS Business Services Authority

A fantastic opportunity has arisen to manage the clinical psychology service for one of the country’s leading bariatric and weight management services within a dedicated and supportive MDT.

This role involves the provision of specialist clinical input to both bariatric surgery (Tier 4) and weight management (Tier 3) teams, management and clinical supervision for other psychologists and strategic planning for psychology within these services.

The surgery team has an international Centre of Excellence status and is supportive of opportunities to develop training and research both locally and nationally.

Somerset is a wonderful place to work with the Quantocks and Exmoor within easy reach. It is on the mainline rail network, with Exeter and Bristol under an hour, London under 2 hours. The role is based within Musgrove Park Hospital. Recent changes to the Trust organisation have linked the acute and community trusts and so there is good support from the wider clinical psychology department as well as the clinical health psychology team within the hospital.
