This is a full -time consultant role which is predominantly general adult inpatient at the Mater Mental Health Centre and may include some Community out patient clinics, or a combination of both depending on need.

The inpatient unit consists of 24 beds for consumers with acute mental health issues.

The locum would have approx. 12 inpatients all week but for 3 days they will also be required to consultant for the other 12 patients (as that team has consultant cover only Monday and Tuesday). There are 2 registrars and 2 JMOs on the unit.

Accreditation as a RANZCP supervisor is advantageous as provision of supervision for the registrar is an important part of the position. 

The community team includes staff specialist psychiatrists, 2 registrars, and a multidisciplinary team, and if required, you may be asked to assess newly referred patients, or alternatively, patients who are care coordinated by clinicians at the service. 0296412472, 0415223229
