We are looking for an enthusiastic Clinical Psychologist to join our General Paediatrics Team.  The role is outpatient based.  Children and young people are referred by members of the General Paediatric team, and you will work closely with the team.  The role is broad and includes activities such as:

  • Assessment of children with possible autism, ADHD, learning difficulties, and intellectual disability
  • Assessment and intervention for children and young people with anxiety and somatising symptoms
  • Assessment and intervention for children and young people with a range of behavioural difficulties including toileting problems, school anxiety, sleep difficulties, etc
