At UCLH (University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust) our success starts with you.
We want you to come to UCLH, and stay at UCLH, because our success starts with you. All of our staff have been involved in developing our values. We believe that they make UCLH a better place for patients and staff alike.
This is an exciting opportunity to join one of the largest and most successful Foundation Trusts in the UK with an international reputation and a tradition of innovation.
Many of our services operate from new or newly refurbished facilities including the University College Hospital Macmillan Cancer Centre which opened in 2012. So why join UCLH…?
We have a reputation as a centre of clinical excellence
Our hospitals are in great central London locations
We have new facilities and state-of-the-art medical technology
We have a wide range of career opportunities that we can offer
For the previous three years, UCLH has been in the top 20% of all NHS Trusts for the overall staff engagement score in the NHS Staff Survey. In recent NHS staff survey results from 2016, UCLH has been named one of the ten best performing non-specialist trusts against the following statement: 'If a friend of relative needed treatment I would be happy with the standard of care provided by this organisation'.
Based in the busy West End of London, we have a lively and vibrant working atmosphere, with quick and easy transport links to all our sites. Our size and resources enable us to offer a range of attractive benefits as well as unparalleled education and development opportunities for staff at all levels. This includes an extensive portfolio of academic and clinical courses and programmes ranging from ongoing personal development through to clinical excellence and leadership skills. UCLH prides itself on its investment in staff both in terms of developing career skills but also its commitment to staff health and wellbeing.

This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic psychologist to join a novel and award winning team at UCLH. The Complex Pain Team (CPT) is a jointly commissioned service between Camden & Islington CCG and UCLH Foundation Trust, which provides care for complex pain patients both in the acute hospital setting and by liaising closely with secondary and primary care services, with the aim of providing continuous shared care across all sectors. Patients may be assessed by the CPT in A & E or the wards at our hospital sites (UCLH, Westmoreland Street, National Hospital for Neurology & Neurosurgery). Joint plans with other surgical and medical teams are often drawn up in MDT meetings with patients present and patients are introduced to mutli-disciplinary pain management work. The post holder will be part of a multi-disciplinary team including Pain Consultants, Pain Management Physiotherapy and Nursing. The work of the team received the UCLH Excellence Award for Improving 2017 and is being presented as a novel improvement at the IHI BMJ Quality Forum. The post is initially offered as a fixed term contract until end of December 2017 although it is hoped the post will be extended if the team secures ongoing funding.

Dr Anna Mandeville, Consultant Clinical Psychologist and Lead Psychologist for Complex Pain Team at or on 0203 4473339 or 07484 249148.
