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


Liaison Psychiatry Credential Pilot

The Royal College of Psychiatrists, in partnership with Health Education England (HEE) are currently running a pilot to develop a credential in Liaison Psychiatry.   The pilot is aimed at consultants who already have a CCT in General or Old Age Psychiatry (or equivalent) and who wish to work in a Liaison Psychiatry service as a Liaison Psychiatrist.  The aim is 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.

A high number of applicants from across the country responded to an advert for pilot sites, with over 20 consultants confirmed on the pilot.


*** Please note that the pilot is now coming to an end and we are unable to accept any new applications.  If the pilot is successful and we go ahead with the credential, there may be an opportunity to participate in future.

If you are interested in the credential and would like to be kept informed of any future opportunities please email Tony Roche, Curricula and Quality Manager, with your details;
