The Department of Clinical Psychology contains a team of Clinical Psychologists who have particular experience and expertise in the field of physical health and disability. The psychologists have particular expertise in the following areas: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder; anxiety; depression; body image problems and difficulties with intellectual functioning.

The department receives referrals from a range of different departments within the hospital which include Burns & Plastic Surgery, Spinal Injuries, Wessex Rehabilitation Centre, Diabetes, Stroke Unit, Oncology and Palliative Care.

We are also happy to provide teaching sessions on the psychological aspects of various illnesses and injuries and we continually undertake research and audit work.
