Ready for the recognition and rewards you deserve? We don’t just talk about putting employees first. We know that Priory wouldn’t exist without their combined energy, expertise and effort.  So we invest heavily in training, provide first-class support, promote collaborative teamwork and give everyone on our team the opportunities and resources to achieve their full potential.

Lakeside View is a 32 bedded hospital in Willenhall that cares for patients who are 18 years and over in an acute setting.

 

Finch Ward - 12 bedded male acute ward

Robin Ward - 8 bedded male acute ward

Swan Ward - 8 bedded female acute ward

 

The aim at Lakeside View is to provide a person centred approach and therapeutic environment, which promotes collaborative care planning to optimise treatment goals. Right from the point of admission to our acute services, our aim is to support patients to be discharged safely back into the community where they can continue to progress towards recovery in a less restrictive environment.

 

This will be achieved by:

•           Thorough assessment of individuals needs throughout admission

•           Person centred collaborative treatment plans

•           A range of interventions available from a diverse MDT

•           Being cared for in the least restrictive environment

 

The acute wards on site provides patients with excellent space and facilities, including en-suite bedrooms and large living spaces furnished with activity equipment such as games consoles.

 

Outside of the wards, a purpose built therapy suite contains a rehabilitation kitchen for patient cooking sessions, and a sessional therapy room. The hospital is set in the centre of an extensive nature reserve, which contains an abundance of flora & fauna. The site also has areas for outside sports activity.

 

The clinical team at Lakeside View encourage full involvement of the service user, their family and external professionals throughout their stay. They are invited to attend Ward Reviews and CPA meetings to ensure clear communication throughout the care pathway in order to promote individuals' recovery and facilitate discharge.

 

In order to maximise recovery, interventions offered include a wide range of therapeutic approaches, combining psychiatric and cognitive behavioural perspectives with occupational therapy, psychology, leisure and recreational activity. 

 

We are seeking a full time Consultant Psychiatrist.
