Barts Health is one of the largest NHS trusts in the country, and one of Britain’s leading healthcare providers.

The Barts Health group of NHS hospitals is entering an exciting new era on our improvement journey to becoming an outstanding organisation with a world-class clinical reputation. Having lifted ourselves out of special measures, we now have the impetus and breathing space to chart a fresh course in which we are continually striving to improve all our services for patients.

Our vision is to be a high-performing group of NHS hospitals, renowned for excellence and innovation, and providing safe and compassionate care to our patients in east London and beyond. That means being a provider of excellent patient safety, known for delivering consistently high standards of harm-free care and always caring for patients in the right place at the right time. It also means being an outstanding place to work, in which our WeCare values and behaviours are visible to all and guide us in how we work together.


We have an exciting opportunity for three full time, permanent, band 7 clinical psychologists to join our growing clinical psychology service for adults who receive treatment at the Barts Heart Centre at St Bartholomew’s Hospital (which is part of Bartshealth NHS Trust).

The Bart’s Heart Centre (BHC) Clinical Psychology Service works with adult patients and their families who live with an acute or chronic cardiac condition and those who require a critical care admission (predominantly cardio-thoracic and cancer related). It also provides a range of support structures for staff who look after these patients. Specifically these patients are under the care of specialist multidisciplinary teams within the Bart’s Heart Centre, including the adult congenital heart service (GUCH), The Heart Attack Centre (HAC); The Adult Critical Care Unit (ACCU); Heart Failure, Electrophysiology, Inherited Cardiovascular Conditions and the Chest Wall Service. The post holder will be working with adults who have life limiting and life-threatening conditions.

The service is managed by a consultant clinical psychologist who is responsible for leading and developing the clinical psychology provision for cardiac and critical care patients, and coordinating support for the staff who look after those patients across the Heart Centre at St Bartholomew’s Hospital. Within the service, there are also four service lead clinical psychologists, each coordinating psychology provision for their area of the Heart Centre, who will provide the line management and clinical supervision for the three band 7 post holders.

We operate within a mixed model, i.e. specialty attached psychologists embedded within their respective medical teams with centralised referral allocation and discussion so that workload can be shared evenly between psychologists and allocated according to skill mix and case complexity. The band 7 postholders will pick up psychology referrals from specialist teams across the BHC and will work closely with the psychology service leads as well as the consultant service lead, allowing for a good balance of autonomy and support in line with their stage in career development. These posts are varied and exciting roles with lots of opportunity for service development and research as well as providing specialist clinical psychology input through direct work (with inpatients and outpatients) and indirect work through consultation to the wider multidisciplinary team. The Barts Heart Centre Teams are very welcoming, and they really value psychology input for their patients and staff.

There is also a wider team of clinical psychologists, on the St Bartholomew’s site, working in cancer and palliative care and respiratory services with lots of opportunity for peer support, joint case working when a specialty overlap exists and shared service development on common themes across the hospital, for example, staff support.

The clinical psychology service which started as a 12 month project for congenital heart patients in 2017 has been extended and developed over the past three years and now provides an established service to the Barts Heart Centre with a structure that allows for appropriate supervision, line management, leadership and career development.

We would welcome applicants who are qualified as well as those who are due to qualify from clinical training in Autumn 2021. Interested applicants are strongly advised to contact Dr Vicky Kelly (Consultant Clinical Psychologist) to arrange a time to discuss the post by emailing her on: vicky.kelly3@nhs.net.

Salary:
£45,780 - £51,393 per annum inc

Barts Health is one of the largest NHS trusts in the country, and one of Britain’s leading healthcare providers.

The Barts Health group of NHS hospitals is entering an exciting new era on our improvement journey to becoming an outstanding organisation with a world-class clinical reputation. Having lifted ourselves out of special measures, we now have the impetus and breathing space to chart a fresh course in which we are continually striving to improve all our services for patients.

Our vision is to be a high-performing group of NHS hospitals, renowned for excellence and innovation, and providing safe and compassionate care to our patients in east London and beyond. That means being a provider of excellent patient safety, known for delivering consistently high standards of harm-free care and always caring for patients in the right place at the right time. It also means being an outstanding place to work, in which our WeCare values and behaviours are visible to all and guide us in how we work together.


We have an exciting opportunity for three full time, permanent, band 7 clinical psychologists to join our growing clinical psychology service for adults who receive treatment at the Barts Heart Centre at St Bartholomew’s Hospital (which is part of Bartshealth NHS Trust).

The Bart’s Heart Centre (BHC) Clinical Psychology Service works with adult patients and their families who live with an acute or chronic cardiac condition and those who require a critical care admission (predominantly cardio-thoracic and cancer related). It also provides a range of support structures for staff who look after these patients. Specifically these patients are under the care of specialist multidisciplinary teams within the Bart’s Heart Centre, including the adult congenital heart service (GUCH), The Heart Attack Centre (HAC); The Adult Critical Care Unit (ACCU); Heart Failure, Electrophysiology, Inherited Cardiovascular Conditions and the Chest Wall Service. The post holder will be working with adults who have life limiting and life-threatening conditions.

The service is managed by a consultant clinical psychologist who is responsible for leading and developing the clinical psychology provision for cardiac and critical care patients, and coordinating support for the staff who look after those patients across the Heart Centre at St Bartholomew’s Hospital. Within the service, there are also four service lead clinical psychologists, each coordinating psychology provision for their area of the Heart Centre, who will provide the line management and clinical supervision for the three band 7 post holders.

We operate within a mixed model, i.e. specialty attached psychologists embedded within their respective medical teams with centralised referral allocation and discussion so that workload can be shared evenly between psychologists and allocated according to skill mix and case complexity. The band 7 postholders will pick up psychology referrals from specialist teams across the BHC and will work closely with the psychology service leads as well as the consultant service lead, allowing for a good balance of autonomy and support in line with their stage in career development. These posts are varied and exciting roles with lots of opportunity for service development and research as well as providing specialist clinical psychology input through direct work (with inpatients and outpatients) and indirect work through consultation to the wider multidisciplinary team. The Barts Heart Centre Teams are very welcoming, and they really value psychology input for their patients and staff.

There is also a wider team of clinical psychologists, on the St Bartholomew’s site, working in cancer and palliative care and respiratory services with lots of opportunity for peer support, joint case working when a specialty overlap exists and shared service development on common themes across the hospital, for example, staff support.

The clinical psychology service which started as a 12 month project for congenital heart patients in 2017 has been extended and developed over the past three years and now provides an established service to the Barts Heart Centre with a structure that allows for appropriate supervision, line management, leadership and career development.

We would welcome applicants who are qualified as well as those who are due to qualify from clinical training in Autumn 2021. Interested applicants are strongly advised to contact Dr Vicky Kelly (Consultant Clinical Psychologist) to arrange a time to discuss the post by emailing her on: vicky.kelly3@nhs.net.

We operate within a mixed model, i.e. specialty attached psychologists embedded within their respective medical teams with centralised referral allocation and discussion so that workload can be shared evenly between psychologists and allocated according to skill mix and case complexity. The band 7 postholders will pick up psychology referrals from specialist teams across the BHC and will work closely with the psychology service leads as well as the consultant service lead, allowing for a good balance of autonomy and support in line with their stage in career development. These posts are varied and exciting roles with lots of opportunity for service development and research as well as providing specialist clinical psychology input through direct work (with inpatients and outpatients) and indirect work through consultation to the wider multidisciplinary team. The Barts Heart Centre Teams are very welcoming, and they really value psychology input for their patients and staff.

There is also a wider team of clinical psychologists, on the St Bartholomew’s site, working in cancer and palliative care and respiratory services with lots of opportunity for peer support, joint case working when a specialty overlap exists and shared service development on common themes across the hospital, for example, staff support.

The clinical psychology service which started as a 12 month project for congenital heart patients in 2017 has been extended and developed over the past three years and now provides an established service to the Barts Heart Centre with a structure that allows for appropriate supervision, line management, leadership and career development.
