 Leukaemia UK Mind and Body Clinical Psychologist (Band 8A)

Clinical Psychologist - Leukaemia UK Mind & Body Project, Kings’ College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. We are seeking an enthusiastic Clinical Psychologist with experience of practicing at the interface of mental and physical health to join the Leukaemia UK Mind & Body Project.

Jointly funded by Leukaemia UK and the Institute of Haematology, the Mind and Body Team will be based at King’s College Hospital Foundation NHS Trust providing integrated biopsychosocial care to people with haemato-oncological and haematological disorders. By appointing a specialist multi-disciplinary team of Psychiatrist, Psychologist, Social Worker and AHPs to join our existing team of Psychotherapists, the project seeks to firmly embed mental health support at the centre of every patient’s treatment.

While there will be ample opportunity to offer direct psychological interventions, there will also be a strong emphasis on developing services that are integrated into existing MDT processes. This new role that would suit a dedicated, ambitious Clinical Psychologist seeking an opportunity to improve healthcare provision through this exciting new initiative.
