The programme has outlined three main workstreams — early psychosis detection, suicide prevention and the management of eating disorders as the focus for 2012.
To support these workstreams, Dr Brid Hollywood, GP Co-Lead, Mental Health, Clinical Care Programme, has agreed to appoint three GP workstream leads to each.
The appointments will be for a fixed term and an honorarium will be provided. Each GP lead will work closely with Dr Hollywood and Dr David Hanlon, ICGP National GP Lead Co-ordinator. The psychiatric lead for the programme is Prof Ian Daly.
The position will require attendance at meetings, the preparation and review of documents and the provision of general advice on the development of these workstreams.
Applications must be submitted by the close of business on May 9.
