Job Description

Saskatchewan Health Authority - North Battleford, is looking for Psychiatrists with an interest in forensic work and also, in the care and treatment of long-term rehabilitation patients.

Saskatchewan Hospital is a 156 bed tertiary care facility serving the whole of the province of Saskatchewan. The three psychiatrists on staff are responsible for the management of a population of chronic psychotic patients as well as providing the justice system with assessments of remand patients regarding their criminal responsibility and fitness to stand trial.

As a specialized rehabilitation service, the hospital admits approximately 40 patients per year from other mental health centres for a treatment program that typically lasts 18 - 24 months. Approximately 100 of the facilities' patients could be considered permanent residents. These individuals are reviewed through multidisciplinary conferencing every three to six months. There is no out-patient component to this position. On-call duties are shared with the Psychiatrists of the Battlefords Mental Health Centre in a 1 in 8 rotation. In late summer 2018, the hospital will be relocated to a newly built and expanded 188 bed facility which will eventually incorporate a further 96 beds for mentally ill offenders from Correctional Services.
