The Paediatric Liaison Child and Adolescent Mental Health Team, based at the Royal Hospital for Children (RHC), has been honoured for their incredible work with children and young people at this year’s Royal College of Psychiatrists Award ceremony.
This multi-disciplinary team supports children and young people attending the RHC who also have mental health issues and delivers a high quality service to those patients. The team support patients from across Greater Glasgow and Clyde in the hospital which provides local, regional and national acute paediatric services.
The team was presented with the RCPsych Child and Adolescent Team of the Year Ward for its work with children and young people after beating off stiff competition from teams across the UK.
The Awards, now in their ninth year, saw 300 guests, who work in mental health services attend the event.
Professor Wendy Burn, President of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, congratulated the winning individuals and teams on their success and mentioned how hugely impressed the judges were by this year’s quality of entries.
Stephen McLeod, Head of Specialist Children’s Services, said: “I am delighted the team have won this prestigious national award.
“It recognises the tremendous work they do with children and young people who attend RHC and who experience mental health disorders. It also reflects the excellent joint working with paediatric clinicians.”
