National Personality Disorder
23 posts were advertised in local NHS newsletters, the Guardian, Nursing Times, Community Care, Health Services Journal and the British Medical Journal in May/June 2004. The intention was to have "polymorphous" job profiles, so for nearly all the clinical posts, we did not specify whether people needed to be from any particular clinical background. This is in line with the capabilities framework.
83 applications were received and 43 people shortlisted, and invited to the selection day on 20 July 2004.
