The Group was set up in 1999 to bring together newcomers to the
specialty of Liaison Psychiatry, both those planning a career with
Liaison sessions, and those passing through training posts to other
destinations. Posts are usually based in general hospitals, where
trainees can feel isolated from their peers, so a network to share
news and educational developments was set up.
A paper newsletter is published twice a year with the main
Liaison Faculty newsletter, and group members are invited to
participate in the annual residential meeting of the Liaison
Faculty. We are also planning to hold our own annual event.
The group is open to all trainees and new consultants with an
interest in liaison psychiatry, and is not restricted to those in
specialist posts. International members are welcome. A list of
group members is held on our electronic mailing list.
- Dr Tayyeb Tahir (Chair)
- Dr Alex Mitchell (Secretary)
