Senior Medical Officer, Glasgow Alcohol and Drug Recovery Services

Permanent full-time equivalent salary: £84,276 + £3,000 responsibility allowance.

Glasgow Alcohol and Drug Recovery Services provide community treatment and care to reduce harm and promote recovery. As well as being one of the largest and most dynamic drug and alcohol service providers in Europe, we are also at the forefront of service developments in many areas including community based rehabilitation, community based Hepatitis C care pathways and Heroin Assisted Treatment.

The existing full-time post offers a rare opportunity to split your time between management and clinical responsibilities. Your role will include line management and leadership of the community based medical workforce. You will provide the senior medical input into the integrated, multidisciplinary teams, both at the senior management and workforce level. You will also have the unique opportunity to be involved in research projects and lead the way in new service developments. We have close ties with our partners, including voluntary and third sector organisations, and you will work closely with our highly regarded public health colleagues.

In addition to your leadership role, you will carry a caseload of complex problem drug and alcohol users within our existing developed clinic model. You will work autonomously alongside our experienced nursing, pharmacy and social care staff and will have the direct support of our Lead Clinician.

Candidates should hold full GMC registration with licence to practice and either be GPs with considerable experience in substance misuse or psychiatrists who have completed their CCT with addiction endorsement.  We look forward to recruiting a dynamic and enthusiastic substance misuse specialist who wishes to contribute to the further development of our integrated services.
