Trent PTS provides NHS psychological services (IAPT) across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. We have ambitious plans to expand our teams to meet continued demand. Within Nottinghamshire, we have teams in the city centre who work in dedicated psychotherapy centres providing all IAPT approved treatment modalities being closely aligned to GP practices and university health services. All our teams are expanding in the next few months but right now we are opening a new treatment centre in Bingham. Located within Rushcliffe and within a short commute of the city but also Radcliffe, West Bridgford, Grantham and Newark. Bingham sits on the intersection of the A52/A46 and Leicester City is not an unreasonable commute.

Our Bingham clinic will be a new team drawn together from existing staff and new staff whom we now wish to recruit. It’s a fantastic opportunity to be part of a team establishing its presence within the surrounding community but also supporting a wider catchment area through digital technologies and skype type interventions. All our therapists have a dedicated room, efficient data management systems and administrative support available, all underpinning our expert clinical services.

Trent PTS is singularly focused on achieving remarkable outcomes for our local populations. We are an organisation that is dynamic, agile and dedicated to helping our staff reach and exceed their potential. We have an active continuing professional development programme which is currently being further refreshed and we are keen to further increase its emphasis on clinical skills development. Clinical supervision and supervisor groups are at the centre of our clinical governance process, along with partnership developments and creating pathways for vulnerable populations. In the near future we will be developing a leadership programme for career development in our expanding business.

We have posts for Counsellors, CBT therapists and PWP’s across the service but our new clinic in Bingham might be of interest to those looking for a whole life change as Rushcliffe and the surrounding area, including Bingham, offers high quality living.
