Our services

Psychological Medicine

Welcome to the Department of Psychological Medicine whose main base is at York Hospital, with a new smaller hub at Scarborough Hospital.  We are a modestly sized service comprised of Clinical Psychologists, a Counsellor and a Counselling Psychologist, whose focus is on the delivery of complex and tailored psychological interventions for physically and medically ill patients.  Clinical Psychologists in Training from local Universities are frequently on placement with us and see patients.

We hold outpatient clinics at York, Selby, Harrogate and Scarborough Hospitals and at our main department office, The Old Chapel, Bootham Park, York.  We also see in- patients at York Hospital.

The Department leads a number of Reflective Practice Groups with MDT staff to promote and enhance their psychological understanding and emotional responses to patients, and enable their clinical practice.  We also run regular experiential Sage and Thyme© courses for staff, to enhance communication skills.  Staff can access this via the Learning Hub. We are also developing Schwartz Rounds © to staff, which provide managed spaces for emotional processing.

Training and teaching, audit and supervision are also regularly conducted.
