The Opportunity
This position will see you provide mental health services to children, youth and their families within the Hospital and Health Service whilst the Evolve team provides therapeutic services to children in the care of the department of child safety. You will be supported by another fulltime CYMHS consultant and a part time consultant for AMYOS.
You will possess the ability to develop, maintain and provide mental health services of the highest possible quality and safety to children, young people and families.
The Hospital
This Hospital is a major acute hospital with 341 beds and offers services in all major health specialities, including anaesthetics, emergency, medicine, surgery, intensive and coronary care, orthopaedics, obstetrics, paediatrics, palliative care, rehabilitation and mental health along with a full range of allied health services.
It has a major teaching role, providing both undergraduate and postgraduate clinical education and training.
The Hospital expansion was completed in 2014. It includes expansion to the emergency department, operating theatres, birthing suite and the intensive care unit. In addition, State and Commonwealth Governments have also committed $6.7 million of capital funding to the hospital to enhance its existing services for children, including 12 emergency treatment spaces, six short stay beds and a separate child-friendly waiting area for families that will be supported by a team of staff with specialist skills in children’s health, and facilities will be enhanced for people accessing ear nose and throat services in the outpatients department.
The Location
Being on the outskirts of a major city, and only a couple of hours drive from South Queensland’s best beaches, this is an ideal location to cater for those looking for peace and tranquillity and also city life and the beaches.
The area itself has much to offer indoors and outdoors, with wonderful nature reserves and art galleries.
Locals and visitors have been coming to the local Park to see animals for almost 80 years. The modern day Nature Centre offers a range of Australian wildlife, lush landscaped gardens and exhibits that have been recreated to represent local bushland and flora communities.
At another nearby park are expansive green lawns, bike tracks, tree top walks and shady picnic areas which are great for all the family. Add to this the Family Water Play area where excited, screaming children are getting dunked by a huge tipping bucket and sprayed with water jets and parents can keep a watchful eye from the nearby café while having a cuppa and sweet treat.
The Gallery presents a program of changing exhibitions and heritage displays, special events, family activities, complementary performances and art workshops. It is one of the most-visited regional art galleries in Australia.
