Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust has been rated as Good by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

We are a responsive and innovative Foundation Trust that places our values of Caring, Safe and Excellent at the heart of everything we do. We take great pride in our staff and believe that investing in you is key to us achieving our vision of outstanding care delivered by outstanding people.

We work with a wide range of partner organisations to deliver care and support to people in their own homes and from a number of hospitals and community bases. We focus on delivering care as close to home as possible.


Oxford Health are offering an exciting opportunity for two training posts within Wiltshire and Bath and North East Somerset Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) One post will be based in Marlborough, Wiltshire and the other in Keynsham, BaNES. There will be a requirement to travel between the bases for meetings.

This opportunity is part of the Child and Young Persons Improving Access to Psychological Therapies Programme (CYP-IAPT) initiative of offering Recruit to Train (RTT) posts to clinicians who are registered RMN, Occupational Therapists, Social Worker, Clinical Psychologists and who wish to learn an additional therapeutic skill. The post-holder will, therefore, work within CAMHS providing SFP clinics supervised by family therapists whilst undertaking a programme of training for this role. The training will take place at Exeter University and tuition and travel expenses will be paid by the Trust, in line with Trust policy.

The post-holder will work in CAMHS for three days of the week using newly developed skills alongside their core clinical training and attend the University based training programme for two days per week. Other mental health clinical duties include assessment and treatment, attending team meetings, CPD, statutory mandatory training, etc, consistent with their core profession and the clinical need of the team.

On successful completion of the training the post holders will be encouraged to apply for substantive posts within CAMHS.
