Dr Jane Walker, Senior Clinical Researcher and Consultant Psychiatrist, has been shortlisted for 'Psychiatric Academic Researcher' of the Year 2015 by the Royal College of Psychiatrists. The annual RCPsych Awards mark the highest level of achievement within psychiatry, and are designed to recognise and reward excellent practice in the field of mental health.

Dr Walker's research with CLAHRC Oxford focuses on patients who have both physical and mental health problems, so-called 'medical-psychiatric multimorbidity'.

Through this research Dr Walker works to improve the quality of life for people with chronic and life-limiting diseases, developing and evaluating new treatments for patients with depression and anxiety.

As a member of the Oxford CLAHRC, I am delighted to be shortlisted for this prestigious award. - Dr Jane Walker

Dr Walker is a Senior Clinical Researcher based at Oxford University's Department of Psychiatry, and a Consultant Psychiatrist at Sir Michael Sobell House Hospice, which provides specialist palliative care across Oxfordshire for adults with advanced, progressive illnesses.

The winners will be announced at the RCPsych Awards Ceremony, to be held at the Royal College of Psychiatrists' headquarters in London on 10th November 2015. 

Previous winners of RCPsych awards include CLAHRC Oxford Theme 4 lead Professor Michael Sharpe, who won Psychiatrist of the year in 2014.
