Join us and become part of the most engaged workforce of any NHS trust in England, according to the latest national NHS Staff Survey results – for the second year running.

You will be joining a dynamic and forward-looking organisation in the heart of the capital where you can develop your career and broaden your horizons.

We think you will enjoy working for us but you don’t have to take our word for it – 79% of staff who took part in the latest national NHS Staff Survey would recommend Guy’s and St Thomas’ as a place to work.

We are looking to recruit a committed, enthusiastic and experienced Clinical Psychologist for a fixed term maternity cover post within the Paediatric Diabetes Service at King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

The post-holder will join a dynamic team where psychology is highly valued and embedded within a multidisciplinary approach to patient care. The service supports children and young people with diabetes from the point of diagnosis, through to the time at which they transition to Adult Services. The post holder will provide assessments and psychological support to children, young people and their families, including at the point of diagnosis, at key transition points, in addition to supporting the family with some of the common challenges experienced in relation to diabetes and its management.

The post holder would also be responsible for co-facilitating groups as well as contributing to diabetes staff teaching days that are run throughout the year. The King’s College Hospital service forms part of the wider Young Diabetes Connections (YDC) network, along with the Evelina London Children’s Hospital, Princess Royal University Hospital and Lewisham Hospitals.

We invite HCPC registered applicants with experience and understanding of working with long-term conditions (ideally diabetes), and proven skills working with children, young people and families.

This is a 0.6wte post, starting as soon as possible with a fixed term contract of 9 to 12 months. The working days are Tuesdays and Fridays (essential clinic days) and Thursdays.

Closing Date: 27th April 2018 at Midnight

Interview Date: week commencing 7th May 2018

Please contact Dr Emma Smith, Lead Psychologist for Young Diabetes Connections (YDC) for further information and discussion about the post on 07810 630962.
