SLaM scoops prestigious psychiatry awards

We are delighted to announce that one of our child and adolescent mental health teams and a SLaM consultant psychiatrist won top awards at last night's Royal College of Psychiatrists' awards ceremony.

Professor Sukhi Shergill scooped the prize for best academic researcher of the year for his clinical work at the national psychosis unit and the Centre for Intervention Peadiatric Psychopharmacology (CIPP) won best psychiatric team of the year.

Professor Shergill said: "I’m very grateful for the award from the Royal College of Psychiatrists. I view this award as a tribute to the patients and carers within our SLAM services who have given so generously of their time to progress our knowledge of psychosis and its treatment.”

Dr Santosh Paramala from the CIPP said: "It's a great achievement and I'm really proud of our team."

The RCPsych awards mark the highest level of achievement in psychiatry. They recognise and reward the outstanding teams and individuals who are making a real difference to mental health services.

There were three further nominations for SLaM - Peter O'Hare was shortlisted for his outstanding contribution to sustainability, the Mother and Baby Unit at Bethlem Royal Hospital was shortlisted for non-age specific psychiatric team of the year and our eating disorders day care team was shortlisted for psychiatric team of the year for working-age adults. 

The winners were announced at the RCPsych Awards Ceremony at the Royal College of Psychiatrists' headquarters in London on 10 November 2015.
