Leukaemia UK Mind and Body Clinical Psychologist (Band 8A)
Clinical Psychologist - Leukaemia UK Mind & Body Programme, Kings’ College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
The integration of physical and mental healthcare is a core aim of the new Institute of Haematology. We are offering an exciting opportunity for an experienced and enthusiastic Clinical Psychologist to join our Haematology / Leukaemia UK Mind & Body Team 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 Mind & Body team of psychiatrist, clinical psychologist, social worker and allied health professionals to join our existing team of psychological therapists, our aim is to firmly embed holistic mental health support at the centre of every patient’s treatment.
As well as providing direct psychological care to patients and carers, there will be a strong emphasis on the post-holder developing innovative ways of delivering psychological interventions and services as, together, we aim to develop a world class biopsychosocial support service within the Institute of Haematology.
This new role, jointly funded by the Haematology Institute and Leukaemia UK, would suit a dedicated, ambitious Clinical Psychologist seeking an opportunity to improve wellbeing and healthcare provision through this exciting new initiative.
You must have appropriate UK professional registration.
The postholder will have access to vulnerable people in the course of their normal duties and as such this post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and as such it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service to check for any previous criminal convictions.
