The Northumberland and North Tyneside Liaison Psychiatry Team is a team of mental health professionals who are experts in helping people who harm themselves. When a person self harms, it is often a sign of great distress which may call for professional help.
The team consists of a Nurse Consultant, a small team of Community Psychiatric Nurses (CPNs), a Consultant Psychiatrist, and Student Nurses on placement. Junior doctors also join the Team at times. Referrals to us are made by staff at Wansbeck General Hospital.
