This role has been created to ensure that the BSW service meets the national service provision standards as detailed by the Royal College of Psychiatrists CCQI standards.
This exciting new post will lead the clinical work of the new BSW service, by providing senior medical leadership and oversight of management of complex perinatal cases across the BSW STP.
The Perinatal Consultant will be supported in their role by a large multidisciplinary team based at the hub and spoke sites across the patch, including a full time Specialty Doctor, Psychologists, RMNs, an OT, SW, Nursery Nurses and a dedicated Senior Manager.
