Are you an outstanding Junior Doctor looking for new challenges, career development and a competitive salary?

As Resident Medical Officer, you’ll play a crucial role providing on call and day shift cover for Cygnet Churchill.

Cygnet Churchill, in South / Central London, is a 57-bed inpatient mental health hospital for men. Cygnet Churchill has four wards including an emergency acute admissions service (Juniper Ward) and three high dependency inpatient rehabilitation services (Elm Court, Maple Court and Mulberry Court).

This role will be based on Juniper Ward, our 17 bedded male acute service. Our three rehab wards have planned admissions which are completed by the day team and our acute ward takes admissions throughout the day, mostly out-of-hours.

The MDT staff are actively encouraged and supported to complete Quality Improvement Projects, as part of our supportive culture to continue to improve on the quality of care we provide.

There are excellent opportunities to progress your career in the form of support to complete MRCPsych exams.

You'll be covering a mix of out of hours on call (5pm - 9am / weekends) and day shifts on the acute wards, with access to Consultant advice. 

On calls are completed from home but the post holder would be required to come into the service as needed, so the ability to travel is essential. 

At Cygnet, our perks go way beyond pension schemes and excellent professional development.
