Now that life is beginning to slowly get back to a new-normal post the global pandemic, you might be tempted to explore different parts of the UK for job relocation purposes. At Athona, we have numerous permanent psychiatry positions throughout the UK and are always looking for the right candidates to fill them.

The pandemic has heightened the demand for psychiatrists, given that mental health conditions and the need to treat them has risen significantly and due to the increase in mental health support needed across the public and private sector, we are now looking for a number of psychiatrists to work in the East Midlands.

The area

The East Midlands has many large cities and tranquil villages. Whatever kind of location you’re looking for, you’ll be sure to find it here.

Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northampton, Nottinghamshire and Rutland make up this part of the country. With the Peak District round the corner and plenty of nightlife and outdoor activities, there is no shortage of things to do to suit your lifestyle.


The area is easily accessible as you’re never too far from a train station, motorway and even East Midlands airport, with connections to Poland, Spain, Greece and France to name but a few. You’re also only around an hour and a half from London by train.


Across the UK house prices vary from place-to-place. Houses up North and in the Midlands tend to be more affordable with the price of property remaining below the average UK price.


If you plan on relocating with your family, you’ll be happy to know the region is not short on schools. From comprehensive to private, and not to mention the many universities.

Eating and drinking

Did you know the region is home to the Melton Mowbray Pork Pie and a number of world-famous cheeses including Stilton and Red Leicester.
