Our catchment area spans diverse communities, with over 100 first languages spoken. It contains areas of great affluence as well as areas of much deprivation. We are committed to providing services that meet the needs of the people who use them, and we actively encourage involvement from local people who can help make a difference. We’re proud of our diversity and we continue to undertake new initiatives to advance equality for LGBT+, BME and people with disabilities to promote good relations and understanding between our staff.
We are recognised locally, nationally and internationally for providing high quality, innovative healthcare. We aim to employ only the best people, and our experts are frequently called upon to contribute to national health strategy and policy, and many models of our care have been adapted for use in other countries.
We offer a generous relocation package (subject to eligibility assessment) and flexible working options, including bank assignments for most roles. See attached Staff Reward and Wellbeing Handbook detailing our benefits, discounts and wellbeing intiatives for staff.

Central North West London Health NHS Foundation Trust provides a full range of local mental health services to the London Boroughs.
Child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) and Eating disorder services were brought together as a single service line in 2014 and are now under Goodall Division. The service line manages CAMHS services across the London boroughs of Hillingdon, Harrow, Brent, Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster. In each borough, community CAMH services are provided to support young people under 18 and their families. We also provide a specialist Tier 4 national inpatient CAMHS service.
Our specialist Eating Disorders Service accepts national referrals for inpatient, outpatient and day patient services. Services are run from the Vincent Square Eating Disorder Service, based at South Kensington and Chelsea Mental Health Centre (next to Chelsea and Westminster Hospital) and satellite services operate from Northwick Park Mental Health Unit in Harrow.
In Child & Adolescent Services we are working collaboratively with Commissioners to deliver on the Local CAMHS Transformation Plans, as well as joint working with West London Mental Health Trust on the national New Models of Care Pilot across North West London.
The North West London (NWL) New Models of Care (NMoC) Program has provided a unique opportunity for the development of a new Intensive Community Treatment Team (ACTS) for adolescents within Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust.
The ACTS will provide Tier 4 care to young people from the 5 boroughs of Brent, Harrow, Hillingdon, Westminster and Kensington and Chelsea.
The ACTS will be part of an integrated Tier 4 pathway with Lavender Walk, a newly developed 12 bed inpatient unit, with up to 4 day programme spaces, in South Kensington and Chelsea Mental Health Centre. The Unit has been in use since 1st November 2018.
The ACTS will provide high-intensity support to young people in the community, as an alternative to a Tier 4 inpatient admission, and will support young people in hospital to facilitate discharge back to the community and reduce the length of hospital stay.
The team will provide tailored individualised interventions, including pharmacological, family and individual psychological interventions, informed by evidence based practice, for young people with acute mental health conditions, in the least restrictive manner, as close to home as possible.
We will work in a collaborative way with young people and their families to support them on the path to recovery. We will provide a multidisciplinary approach to assessment and treatment we will work closely with the referral network to ensure continuity of care.
Applications are invited for a Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist 10 PA’s to join the team and an exciting team of service development and innovation.
