Re: AP, but with no intention of qualifying?

Would that not be off putting to potential employers though? Unless it's a service where psych is really not valued, I'd have thought lots of expertise etc at AP level is off put by the fact they don't actually want to develop further/qualify... never been in the position to choose but would part o...

Re: 'considered for interview shortlisting 2018'

Showing my age here, but I was thrilled when I got my ‘application received’ postcard through the door - it meant I’d done something right!

Re: Difficult relationships in a small world

I’ve met a fair few people who aren’t my favourites over the years. I can give you the fake psychologist answe about reflecting on what the issues were, trying to have empathy for them and rising above it. But really, if I see them I am fake nice because although I am petty and hold grudges, I enjoy...

Only two people bothered to go to the LiveChat? I'm surprised.

Re: Do you introduce yourself as a Dr?

I think I did when I was newly qualified and super excited to have my title. Now I tend not to, to the point where in my last job, service users were surprised that I was a doctor when they found out. Obviously I took that to mean I look incredibly young, rather than them thinking I’m not clever eno...

Re: Missing lectures/placement days for religious reasons

An interesting question! I don’t know about every course, but the ones I do don’t routinely have regular teaching on a Friday. Often Fridays are study or placement days, but there’s an expectation that you’re available on a Friday to attend Uni if needed. I have no idea about the religious grounds b...

Re: Free online mindfulness for research?

This may not be exactly what you need (not a programme per se) but it's a free resource for mindfulness / relaxation. https://www.ntw.nhs.uk/resource-library ... echniques/

Re: Experience in Transforming Care Programme

Inpatient LD services are currently going through Transforming Care. That means bed closures and community developments, supposedly in tandem. I would think that the successful candidate has already worked in an LD service that is having to make changes as a result of the programme aka they had more...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1. I feel sick at the thought of the next 5 years with a Tory Government
2-5. I hope lots of people do the right thing today and vote Labour (unless it's tactical to vote for someone else).

Re: 8a to 8b

A few years ago, there didn't seem to be many 8B posts. I know the Trust I was in then did away with them in community services, I think because there wasn't a specific need for them. 7s and 8As could do the bulk of the face to face work, then your 8C could oversee a couple of teams and provide supe...
