Description of the work at the clinic / health center
We are looking for three specialists, mainly for outpatient care. Two services for adult psychiatry in Hudiksvall, one to Bollnäs.
As a specialist on the receptions, you participate in a team around the patients. There is a clear structure, where all patients undergo structured diagnosis initially, treatment plan is planned accordingly. This ensures that all patients receive evidence-based care and treatment based on each patient’s condition. Ophthalmology offers efforts to a wide clientele. The open mind is responsible for all psychiatric conditions, such as affective diseases, personality disorders, anxiety disorder, ADHD and certain addiction problems.
A large part of the lighter to middle difficult psychiatry is managed in primary care because the patients you meet on reception are often very ill. As a doctor, you are expected to have at least 5 visits per day. Supervision of younger colleagues is included as a natural part of the work and participation in the unit’s medical development.
Specialists perform the most physician-specific tasks such as diagnostics, drug treatment and the establishment of a care / treatment plan together with the team, on the other hand, psychotherapies are conducted by psychotherapists with other basic professionals. Dutywork is included in the service, both daily and evening / night duties.
You also need knowledge to replace your staff when vacation, illness, etc accure. In Hudiksvall there are two healthcare departments, a general psychiatric hospital with two over-the-counter services and a psychiatric department with a senior care service. As a specialist, you are responsible for the assessment and treatment of these patients. The work is done in teams taking into account the patient’s entire situation (psychiatric, medical, social). The departments work with structured processes to ensure a thorough investigation and planning for care efforts. Patients have their main contact and treatment at our outpatient clinics but in case of failure or severe deterioration, in patient-care can be considered. The aim is, however, that the patient should be able to return to his regular treatment contacts in open care. The department therefore has short periods of care and a large turnover on patients. The average care period is 12-15 days and on average 2 new patients are written per day. The departments have continuous doctors during training, so supervision is a natural part of the work. Specialists are expected to play an active role in the department’s medical development.

On duty work is included as mandatory in all jobs. We currently apply ”preparedness”, which means you don´t have to be in the hospital but must be able to be there within 30 minutes. There is a primary event usually for resident doctors or for doctors under education. As a specialist your role is to act as a back-up. The number of duties per month may vary but 4-5, of which 1-2 weekend days are a regular amount of duty. The duties are located in Hudiksvall. As a doctor in Bollnäs you have fewer duties. During your learning period you will be going to primary duties beside the rest of he residents. Later, when you can work as a specialist your role will be to back up the residents. When you get a delegation to deal with emergency care issues, which usually happens when you get a consultant employment, your duty will instead be a backup doctor.
