We are dedicated in delivering the highest level of patient care, in the most efficient and cost-effective way, with re-investment to ensure services are sustainable.

We are seeking an experienced HCPC registered Clinical Psychologist to deliver psychological assessment and intervention to people affected by persistent pain and chronic fatigue in Herts. Previous experiences in working in Clinical Health Psychology would be an advantage. We are flexible so happy to consider full time or part time applications.

Our specialist multidisciplinary team is key to our delivery and will include the following team members; Advanced Physiotherapy Practitioners, Psychologists and Consultant/GPwSI.

The role will involve working within the multidisciplinary team to develop and implement a persistent pain and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome service pathway. The postholder will offer individual assessments, one-to-one therapeutic work and will be involved in the delivery of  our evidence-based Pain and Chronic Fatigue Management Programme. You will provide supervision, training and consultation on psychological aspects of pain management to other health professionals and to members of the MDT.

We are keen to  develop and promote a positive and dynamic culture within pain services, and you will be key in fostering productive relationships with key stakeholders and referrers.
