Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust (AWP) provides inpatient and community-based mental health care for people living in Bath and North East Somerset (B&NES), Bristol, North Somerset, South Gloucestershire, Swindon and Wiltshire. We also provide specialist services extending throughout the south west.

We employ over 4,000 dedicated members of staff who deliver services from more than 90 locations, working in approximately 150 teams across a geographical region of 2,200 miles, for a population of approximately 1.8million people.

We are passionate about promoting good mental health and wellbeing. We strive to use the expertise and resources within our organisation, and through our partnerships, to deliver high quality services that are safe and focused on people's recovery. Our staff are pivotal in everything we do and we are committed to involving them fully in the development of the Trust and our services.


Salisbury is a beautiful cathedral city with excellent schools (including grammar schools for boys and girls), a vibrant arts culture, easy road access to the New Forest, South Coast, Winchester and Bath and a direct rail link to London in under 90 minutes.

This is an established full time post based at Fountain Way, Salisbury, offering a high quality work-life balance. The Fountain Way site benefits from modern facilities, a hospital library and shop and a new primary care centre. Nine consultants are based at the site (and a tenth at the District General Hospital) with ten junior medical staff as well as visiting medical students from the University of Southampton. There is an in-house weekly teaching programme.

As a Consultant Psychiatrist you will be working alongside a very friendly and enthusiastic group of colleagues. You will be one of five consultants working in the Community Mental Health Team (with one other general adult consultant who also covers Warminster, and three older adult consultants, who also cover the Memory Service and older adult inpatient unit). Most GP referrals are seen by the separate Primary Care Liaison Service.

We seek a candidate with enthusiasm for developing the service and Team members’ skills. Clinicians can develop their special interests and involvement in management.
