Consultant Psychiatrist, County Meath Ireland


Our partner is one of the leading private mental health support groups in the Republic of Ireland. Dealing with some of the most complex cases in the country is not without its challenges, but there is a wealth of nursing and support staff on each site, allowing for a 2 to 1 interaction between clinicians and service users. The group is currently looking for 2 Consultants to join them, as part of their expansion plans due to increased demand. The group has suggested that for those interested in the SRU they would prefer someone who has a background in Forensic Psychiatry.

The facility is not yet open to service users; it’s expected to be in July 2023, starting with 8 beds and moving to 16. It will be approved by the MHC and the service has been specifically designed to cater for individuals with a mental health diagnosis.  When set up there will be strong MDT input and in house, Psychiatry, Psychology, Nursing, Dieticians, Counselling, Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Pathology, Psychotherapy, Physio and Behavioural Services.

The centre will aim to provide support for residents with individual care plans; the achievement of their goals, dreams, and aspirations and to move from the SRU within a 2-year timeframe.

Your Role 

As the facility is not yet operational most of the work will be preparation for it’s opening in July 2023. In the meantime, you will be required to help out with the running and maintenance of other sites, under the organisations control. Once operational, a working week will usually consist of a meeting with the multi-disciplinary team to define the week’s challenges ahead. There is also a meeting expected once a month with each of the service users in the facility. You will also run the admission process; as their person responsible for the facility, you will process referrals, schedule meetings in the service user’s current placement and look to transfer them yours. Rostering will be handled by the director of nursing.
