About us

The UCL Division of Psychiatry is within the Faculty of Brain Sciences and a centre of excellence in Mental Health research. Our aim is to contribute to the improvement of mental health through research and education. We address clinical problems in order to achieve benefits for patients and public health, using insights from basic science. We also deliver innovative teaching, relevant to clinical practice, which is informed by our research.

About the role

We are seeking a well organised full-time research assistant with experience of working with people with severe mental health problems. The NIHR funded research project focuses on inpatient mental health rehabilitation services.

The project will investigate current provision, quality and effectiveness of inpatient mental health rehabilitation services in the NHS and independent sector across England. Around 4,000 people with severe and complex mental health problems are receiving inpatient mental health rehabilitation in England at any time, with over half of these services provided by the independent sector. The use of inpatient rehabilitation provided by the independent sector has attracted negative media attention because the length of admission is longer than in the NHS and individuals are usually much further from home. However, there has been no research investigating the characteristics of patients and services in the two sectors and it is possible that! there ar e important differences between them. For example, it may be that the NHS sends their more complex patients to the independent sector, or that having a longer period of treatment leads to better outcomes.

The ACER (Assessing Clinical and cost Effectiveness of inpatient mental health Rehabilitation in the NHS and independent sector) project comprises four related studies that will investigate these issues. This project is a collaboration between: UCL Division of Psychiatry, UCL PRIMENT Clinical Trials Unit (CTU), the University of Ulster, Priory Group and St Andrew’s Healthcare. Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust is the fundholder.

The project is funded by the NIHR (Health Services Research and Development) and started on 1st October 2021. The post is available immediately and is funded until 27 December 2024 in the first instance.
