Success at HSJ Awards

We are proud to have been shortlisted twice for the prestigious HSJ (Health Service Journal) Awards 2017. Congratulations and well done to Maudsley Simulation and the Psychology in Hostels project.

Maudsley Simulation has been shortlisted for 'Improving outcomes through learning and development'
The UK’s first centre for mental health simulation has now trained more than 5,000 healthcare professionals. Service users are involved in developing training courses for clients in the health sector and beyond. The simulation courses, which involve actors and technology, have led to improvements in patient safety and the quality of healthcare. Earlier this year, Maudsley Simulation was commissioned by Health Education England to produce a video explaining what mental health simulation training is about.

Psychology in hostels project has been shortlisted for ‘Most effective adoption and diffusion of existing best practice’
This pioneering project places psychologists in homeless hostels, to support clients who may have severe mental health issues and a history of substance use. It’s the UK’s leading example of the ‘psychologically informed environment’ model, delivered by the trust in partnership with Thames Reach Hostels and London Borough of Lambeth. The project has been funded by Guy's and St Thomas' Charity for the last three years.
