In 2016 in partnership with Health Education England we ran a pilot to develop a credential in Liaison Psychiatry. The pilot was aimed at consultants who already have a CCT in General or Old Age psychiatry (or equivalent) who wish to work in a liaison psychiatry service as a Liaison psychiatrist. The aim was to establish what a post CCT credential could look like, and the cost and feasibility of participating. 

Currently, formal training in Liaison Psychiatry is only offered as part of higher specialist training leading to an endorsement. A recognised training route is needed for consultants working (or expected to work) in this area, who do not hold an endorsement in liaison psychiatry to meet the service demands.

The pilot is now complete.   If you are interested in the outcome or would like to be kept informed of any future opportunities please email Tony Roche, Curricula and Quality Manager, with your details; tony.roche@rcpsych.ac.uk

JISCmail is the national academic mailing list service.
