At UCLH (University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust) our success starts with you.

We want you to come to UCLH, and stay at UCLH; all of our staff have been involved in developing our values.

We believe that UCLH is a better place for patients and staff alike. This is an exciting opportunity to join one of the largest and most successful Foundation Trusts in the UK with an international reputation and a tradition of innovation.

UCLH has two major strategic projects underway. On Grafton Way, we are building a facility which will be home to one of only two high energy NHS proton beam therapy centres, Europe’s largest centre for the treatment of blood disorders and a hyper modern surgery service.  Close by on Huntley Street we are developing the new Royal National ENT and Eastman Dental Hospitals. Replacing the current hospitals on Grays’ Inn Road, this development will mean we can provide multidisciplinary care to our dental and ENT patients in a modern environment. Our Grafton Way facility is due to open in 2020, with Huntley Street opening in 2019.

NHS staff survey results from 2016, UCLH has been named one of the ten best performing non-specialist trusts against the following statement: “If a friend of relative needed treatment I would be happy with the standard of care provided by this organisation”.

This post offers an exciting opportunity to work with the Headache Service within University College London NHS Foundation Trust.

We are looking for a clinical psychologist to join the Headache Team at The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, part of the University College London NHS Foundation Trust.

The post holder will work alongside another clinical psychologist, nurses and medical colleagues. The post involves assessing people with persistent headaches who are in the Occipital Nerve Stimulation Clinical Pathway, providing evidence based psychological interventions to help them reduce the impact of their headaches on them and their lives and adapt to living with an occipital nerve stimulator. Interventions will be carried out on an individual and group basis. There will also be opportunities to work with people with headaches in other pathways.

The job offers an excellent opportunity to work alongside the 8b in developing the service and become an integrated part of the multi-disciplinary team. The post holder will work with the 8b psychologist to monitor referrals and audit clinical outcomes. Both psychologists will be supported by a consultant clinical psychologist.

Experience of working with people with persistent pain is essential, and with headaches, desirable. Supervision is available from a senior clinical psychologist.
