The John Radcliffe Hospital’s Psychological Medicine Team has been awarded gold in the Trust's 'Team of the Year' category.

Psychological medicine team awarded team of the year

Trust lead for psychological medicine Michael Sharpe, who nominated the team, said it deserved recognition after transforming the care of patients over the past year.

He said: “When a doctor or nurse anywhere in the trust has a problem with the psychological care of a patient, they get there very rapidly and will effectively address the problem and often stay late to do that. They will go to great lengths to be there.”

The Psychological Medicine Team, which launched in March 2013, works alongside the other medics within the trust to combine psychiatric and physical care.

Michael Sharpe is the NIHR CLAHRC Oxford theme lead for research into better management of medical–psychiatric comorbidity.
