POST INFORMATION

Post: ID Community Forensic Team
Trainer: Dr John Parker
Employing Trust: Devon Partnership NHS Trust
Job Description:

This is based at Langdon Hospital as part of the Devon Community Forensic Service within the Secure Services Directorate of Devon Partnership NHS Trust.  The majority of the work would involve assessing and developing care pathways with the multidisciplinary team for the Assuring Transformation (AT) cohort presently detained as inpatients in a range of locked and secure placements. Most of the patients will have intellectual disability or other neurodevelopmental disorders such as ADHD and/ or autism spectrum disorder. The post holder will be expected to travel from time to time to review individuals in out of area placements and attend CPA meetings.  A core aspect of the role would also include undertaking gatekeeping assessments under consultant supervision for those individuals who have been referred for secure care.   

The IDCFT is a skilled and experienced multidisciplinary team comprising Speech and Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Nursing, Psychology, Social Work and Psychiatry colleagues.  It is hoped that the post holder will benefit from a range of experiences with multidisciplinary colleagues.  The consultant supervisor also has extensive management and leadership experience having previously been Clinical Director and would encourage engagement in leadership projects.
