We think differently about our psychiatry roles and will work with you to develop
an opportunity that works for you.
We will support you to balance high quality patient care with pursuing your own special interests within psychiatry, as well as offering opportunities for management and leadership roles.
Whether your focus is on developing your skills for management, research, teaching or innovative service provision, we are here to listen and understand how we can support you to reach your goals.
We want to know what you think and will ensure you have opportunities to share your thoughts on transformation and development, to shape new ways of working and develop improved models of care which will transform patient experience.
You’ll join a forward thinking and award winning Trust that will provide you with the environment to develop and progress your career.

We are partners in the National Institute for Health Research and Humber Clinical Research Network and offer opportunities to take on local Principal Investigator roles in research projects or to lead and generate research as a Chief Investigator.

“The informal peer support that the Psychiatry team offer one another is invaluable - I can ask questions, share concerns and discuss patient support in a supportive environment”.

Next Generation of Doctors
We’re proud to be a major teaching partner with Hull York Medical School (HYMS), one of the UK’s most exciting and contemporary schools which delivers innovative and rigorous medical education and research.
Our Medical Education team supports doctors at all levels of their career, from student placements to postgraduate speciality training and continued development for consultants. We consistently demonstrate our commitment to developing and investing in the psychiatrists of the future by growing our own medical workforce with a good retention rate of trainees as Consultants.
We are proud to provide a thriving learning environment which motivates and inspires trainees, ensuring that they’re excited by the opportunities their career in psychiatry offers. Our teams’ passion for teaching was rewarded in 2020, with a HYMS excellence award for providing students with a positive, inspiring and enjoying experience.
Consultants play an active role in undergraduate teaching and examining and for those who wish to get involved, HYMS is awards the title of Honorary Senior Lecturer. There are opportunities and support for Consultants to become Educational and Clinical Supervisors for Foundation doctors, Core Trainees and GP Trainees and also to develop as Higher Trainers.
It’s a privilege to support someone on their recovery journey and to do that in a supportive and collaborative environment that values my opinions is the ultimate goal.
