Job overview

The Trust is seeking a consultant psychiatrist for Lilacs Ward. This is an established post at Tolworth Hospital, in Kingston. The vacancy has arisen as a result of an internal move of a previous consultant, and there have been 2 long-term locums in post since that time.

This is an exciting opportunity for an energetic and dynamic consultant psychiatrist to join this friendly ward team in a recently reconfigured ward environment.

We’re small enough to be a friendly Trust, but big enough to have internationally recognised, innovative and sometimes ground-breaking services. We have an integrated academic programme, an established quality improvement programme, and good links with our local universities. We’re widely known for the quality of our training, for treating everyone as individuals, and for supporting consultants to develop external roles and special interests. We’re in a beautiful, leafy part of one of the world’s greatest capital cities. We’re currently spending over £150million rebuilding our 2 main hospitals – Springfield Hospital in Tooting and Tolworth Hospital in Surbiton.
