Clinical Service

Our Psychological Medicine Service  aims to transform medical care in Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust by delivering integrated psychiatry and psychology.  This state of the art integration of psychiatry and psychology into medical care is recognised internationally.

Oxford University Hospitals is a world renowned centre of clinical excellence and one of the largest NHS teaching trusts in the UK. It includes the John Radcliffe Hospital, Churchill Hospital and Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre, all located in Oxford, and the Horton General Hospital in Banbury, North Oxfordshire. The Psychological Medicine Service is a core Trust service and we provide assessments, psychological treatments and advice about medication for patients who have been admitted to or are attending clinics at these hospitals.

Our staff are members of many medical teams. These currently include, amongst others, acute medicine, neurology, trauma, oncology, palliative medicine, renal medicine, intensive care, obstetrics and paediatrics.

The service has a major teaching and research role with close links to the University of Oxford, Department of Psychiatry.  It also has links to many Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry services in the USA.
