Re: Shortlisting updates?

I'd say allow a week and a half, so if you haven't heard by Monday give them a ring. For an AP post it might take a while to short list if they have 20+ applicants. They wont mind you calling if you are needing to arrange your diary in advance of the interview day.

Re: 8a to 8b

I've been an 8a for the past 7 years and am now languishing at the top of the pay band with limited hope of moving to an 8b position, in spite of the fact that I've been acting as an 8b for quite some time! My trust has stopped using 8b posts, which makes it very frustrating if you want any sort of ...

Re: FACT model - any experience?

Gilly, thank you for your response. I imagine that the implementation of our model will be very similar to yours and that things will continue in very much the same way as before. The more for less model doesn't seem to fit with FACT, as I think most implementation sites in the UK have found. Blueca...

Re: Goal setting resources

I don't know whether this is the sort of thing you're looking for or not, but I really like Goal Attainment Scaling. It's great for being able to break down a goal and see the steps the client identifies would be them moving towards the goal based on where they are now. I think it could work quite w...

FACT model - any experience?

Once again, we're going through significant change within my service in an effort to make CRES savings and avoid redundancy. The trust have decided that best way to do this is to create a generic mental health service by combining 2 secondary care adult CMHTS, the primary care mental health team and...

Re: Approved and Responsible Clinicians?

My trust are very keen for CP's to train as AC/RC, they are considering making it part of contracted work for all inpatient adult MH psychologists. They have even begun to trial the AC/RC role in Community Teams as well, with the intention being that CP's will manage the care of those on CTO's. Ther...

Hello again

Hello everyone, I haven't been here properly for ages and if I'm honest had kind of forgotten about it :oops: (sorry Miriam and Russ) lol. Anyhow, I just wanted to say that I pledge to come here more often, as I remember how much I enjoyed being here and the other place when my life wasn't quite so ...

Re: Trainees to get stipends next year?

Why should trainee clinical psychologists, providing a band 6 "service" be randomly selected to lose their salary versus other band 6 staff? You wont forgive me for saying this but trainees do not provide "a band 6 service" by any means. Most other professionals on band 6 are not as closely supervi...

Re: How many times did you apply?

I applied once and was lucky enough to get a place first time. I applied 7 years after graduating from my undergrad and hadn't entertained the thought of applying any sooner as I was convinced I'd never get a place.

Re: PGCert Primary Care Mental Health Practice (UCLAN)

Awww this brings back memories. I did this course in way back in 2004 and was in the first cohort. The staff group will no doubt have changed but I hope you have as good as an experience as I did! Can't quite believe that it was 7 years ago now ... eeek!

Re: Discrimination Training in PTSD

I used to have something on this, it wasn't an article but a handout produced by Martina Mueller from OCTC. I let my old manager borrow it and forgot to get it back before I left but can remember quite a bit of it. Am I right in thinking that you're doing your CBT dip with OCTC? You could ask them f...
