Clinical Consultant Physicians - multiple positions

Not enough Psychiatrists to help record of number of people who need mental health treatment. 

Like many countries worldwide following the pandemic, the UK is experiencing a need of Physicians. Record numbers of people need mental health treatment but there aren't enough psychiatrists to meet demand, the Royal College of Psychiatrists' 2021 census has revealed. At least 1.5 million people in England are waiting for treatment but a tenth of consultant psychiatrist posts (568 out of 5,317) are not filled.

Official data shows that there are 4,500 full-time consultant psychiatrists for 56.5 million people, one consultant per 12,567.

Addictions, eating disorders and child and adolescent psychiatry have the highest vacancy rates, even though the numbers of those needing support from these specialties are overwhelmingly high.

To address the shortage, EPSN Workforce is working closely with hospitals to place candidates inside and outside of the UK to help build a strong workforce to shorten waiting lists for life-saving treatments.

Opportunities

There is a plethora of opportunities available in several disciplines within CAMHS support: depression, problems with food and eating, self-harm, abuse, violence or anger, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and anxiety, among other difficulties.
