Are you someone who likes innovation, change management and service development as opposed to business as usual? If so, this job might suit you.
We were part of the second wave of services to receive NHS England funding to set up a new perinatal specialist service in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, for women with severe and complex mental health difficulties, during pregnancy and for up to a year after birth.
Our Perinatal Mental Health Team has been set up against a background of ground breaking new services in the Trust like PCMHS and FRS, which we work alongside to help build a comprehensive pathway of care for women with mild to moderate mental health conditions, through pregnancy, and into their first year of parenthood.
Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Foundation Trust (CPFT), is a Trust which, together with global, national and local partners, conducts high quality and ground-breaking research into mental and physical health and supports innovation at all levels to improve patient care.
The aim of Community Perinatal Mental Health Teams, is to improve access to specialist assessments and treatment to achieve better outcomes for women and families all over England.

If you are looking for a new challenge, enjoy variety in your work and wish to be part of a team striving to make a difference for our community then we want to hear from you.
