These posts provide an excellent developmental opportunity for doctors who have passed their FY2 (or equivalent) competencies to gain experience of working in psychiatry and mental health prior to committing to a specialty core training programme. These posts within the Mental Health & Learning Disabilities Division will allow doctors to gain experience in the psychiatric subspecialties of general adult, old age or learning disabilities with the additional opportunity to experience forensic, child and adolescent, old age liaison and addictions on a ‘taster’ or special interest basis.

Although these Fixed Term Appointment posts are not formally recognised for training, doctors will be afforded the same in-house training opportunities as our training posts with access to a weekly postgraduate psychiatric education programme supported by junior and senior staff, comprising of MRCPsych teaching, case & journal club presentations and introductory psychotherapy training. Doctors will be encouraged to take part in audit and will also be given access to funded external study leave. In addition, to support education, there are excellent library facilities on the St Cadocs and Ysbyty Ystrad Fawr sites.

Doctors will be expected to participate in out-of-hour emergency duties covering mental health and learning disabilities, currently a hybrid on-call and partial shift 1:11 rota.
