Welcome to Psychological Medicine

The Psychological Medicine Department in Oxford is unique in the UK in the degree to which it is integrated and works side by side with medical and surgical services.

We aspire to transform the care delivered by Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (OUH) by integrating psychological and psychiatric care into all aspects of medical and surgical treatment. We do this directly through integration of our clinicians into many of the services the Trust provides, and indirectly through teaching, training, and influencing the culture of the organisation.

We aim to add value to the care that the Trust provides, by improving patient outcomes, patient experience and patient safety and by improving efficiency.

Our philosophy is integration: integration with the clinical services in which we work; integration of disciplines (psychiatry and psychology); and integration with the University.

Oxford Psychological Medicine (through Oxford University Hospitals, the University of Oxford, an NIHR Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care, and membership of the Academic Health Sciences Network) is a leading academic and clinical resource for the integration of psychiatry and psychology into medical care.
