Practice at Cardinal Clinic

Psychiatrists, Psychologists and Psychotherapists

Whether you are an established private practitioner or considering a move away from the NHS for the first time, we would appreciate the chance to talk to you about the opportunities at Cardinal Clinic.  We would love to support you in building your practice with unrivalled support to clinicians, in an organisation with an exemplary approach to patient care.

We are a prestigious independent mental health hospital on the outskirts of Windsor.  We are currently expanding our consulting space due to increasing numbers of patients seeking our support and are actively seeking new clinicians who would like to have practicing privileges with us.

Cardinal Clinic was founded in 1976 and has remained in the same family’s ownership ever since.  This gives us the flexibility to focus on patient care without the pressure of corporate ownership.

We have a substantial in-patient facility alongside our out-patients and day care unit.  We also have a CAMHS out-patient facility.  We received an overall rating of ‘Good’ in this year’s CQC review and achieved an ‘Outstanding’ for patient care.

We offer clinicians practicing benefits which are wide ranging and include opportunities for professional and personal development as well as offering access to referrals at no charge.  There is also professional marketing support available to help you build your private practice.
