Trainees and New Consultants Group of the Liaison Faculty

Training in liaison pschiatry


Keeping the mailing list up-to-date


Please notify us of your current mailing list through the email forum.


We are approached sometimes by departments wishing to circulate details of locum or substantive posts available, mainly at consultant level. In order to know which people to circulate with job information, it would be particularly helpful if people on the mailing list in an SpR post could include their CCST date with the above.


Please let the main Liaison Faculty know if you are no longer interested in receiving the paper newsletter. Members will automatically be deleted from the mailing list 5 years after joining, if we do not hear from you.


Contribute to the web pages


Ideas for what you would like to see available on these web pages can be emailed to us via the discussion list. We would like help with the following:


  • A list of Liaison SHO posts (if you are in one, please let me know).
  • To expand the list of Liaison SpR posts (please let me know if your post is not yet listed below).
  • Training courses relevant to increasing therapeutic skills suitable for liaison work.
  • Any relevant forthcoming events.
  • Relevant additions to any of the items here: eg. book list
  • Your ideas for making the web pages more interesting and useful.
  • Correction of any errors.

About us


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.


List of officers


  • Dr Tayyeb Tahir (Chair)
  • Dr Alex Mitchell (Secretary)
