Job Description

West London NHS Trust is one of the most diverse providers of NHS mental and physical care in the UK. We are rated 'good' by the Care Quality Commission and 'outstanding' for caring and our forensic services.
We are here to care for people with mental and physical illness, helping them to recover and go on to lead full and productive lives. We aim to be the best organisation of our kind in the country.
We provide care and treatment for children, adults and older people living in the London boroughs of Ealing, Hammersmith & Fulham and Hounslow, delivering services in the community (at home, in GP surgeries, care homes), hospital, specialist clinics and forensic (secure) units.
Our physical healthcare services include intermediate care services in Hammersmith & Fulham as part of the Community Independence Service partnership.
Our national, specialist and forensic services include:
  • Medium secure services on the St Bernard's Hospital site in Ealing
  • Services for people with complex and severe personality disorder at the Cassel Hospital in Richmond
  • High secure services at Broadmoor Hospital in Berkshire
We are a teaching Trust with a growing research portfolio, working with academic and industry partners.
Our 3400 staff are dedicated to improving lives, working with patients, service users, carers, families and partners across the communities we serve.

Psychology within WLT is central to the development and delivery of evidence based packages of care, delivered against NICE guidelines with a range of education and training to be rolled-out alongside the service transformation. Psychology is involved in all planning regarding service development and delivery. The successful post holder will join a large psychology department working across Inpatient services, Crisis Assessment and Treatment Teams, Early Intervention, Recovery, Rehabilitation, Primary Care Mental Health, Eating Disorders and many others. The service has an active CPD programme for psychologists alongside rolling out psychological perspectives on the delivery of care to other MDT staff.
The inpatient teams hold psychological formulation and psychological interventions as central to their pathways and the post holder will be expected to contribute to the development and delivery of treatment pathways within these teams. The trust is committed to developing excellent services and you will be part of a team excited by, and striving for, optimal recovery outcomes for each individual who uses our services. We are looking for someone who has experience working within acute and urgent care or a keen interest in working in a fast paced environment. You will be expected to drive formulation based understanding and to lead teams in developing comprehensive packages of care based around these.
West London NHS Trust is one of the first Trusts in London to put in place coproduced standards of care in its inpatient units. Coproduction puts service users, carers and the public on equal footing with NHS staff, commissioners and local authorities, enabling everyone to contribute from gathering information to the development of these standards. The 21 standards have been developed in partnership with the West London Collaborative and cover 10 different themes, including ward environment, treatment and therapies, staffing and support - a trauma informed approach, family and carer involvement, wards as networks, control and restraint, food and nourishment, education and occupation, arts and legal matters.
