The Royal College of Psychiatrists Improving the lives of people with mental illness

Working Together - Celebrating Psychiatric Team Success


As part of the annual RCPsych Awards, the RCPsych Psychiatric Team of the Year Award is made each year to a team that demonstrates innovation, leadership, teamwork and effective use of resources. The winners of this Award clearly demonstrate best practice and team-working across a variety of specialties and settings.


As part of the College’s commitment to sharing best practice, the case studies in this section are designed to help disseminate this best practice by giving an overview of the work done and the achievements of these teams.
