Welcome to West Yorkshire
 
Organisations within West Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership are proud to be a part of the International Pathway Programme. This programme offers doctors working at Consultant Level with relevant training and experience the remarkable opportunity to live in England and work as a Consultant at one of our NHS Trusts in the West Yorkshire area.
 
We are recruiting for Consultant Psychiatrists to join the 3 NHS Trusts offering Mental Health services within the West Yorkshire region. If you’ve never heard of Yorkshire, you’re in for a surprise. It covers an area of around 12,000 square kilometres and is incredibly diverse - large modern and busy cities, beautiful national parks, isolated moorland and amazing coastlines. It’s simply a great place to live and work. 
 
We are recruiting for Consultant Medical Oncologists to join our Non-Surgical Oncology services delivered by the six NHS trusts within the West Yorkshire region. This is an exciting opportunity for you to contribute to a more collaborative way of delivering Non-Surgical Oncology services across our region operating as two sectors comprising the ‘north’ and ‘south’ of the region.
