We understand that there is a lot of anxiety around the safety of the vaccines. The coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines are safe and effective. They will give you the best protection against coronavirus.
A new community survey has just been launched as part of South London Listens to help find the solutions to the impact Covid-19 has had on the mental health of our communities.
We continue to see patients at all our sites, as well as in their homes, and have a number of measures in place to ensure our sites are Covid secure, including the wearing of face masks and coverings, deep cleaning, one-way signage and cleaning stations.
Our forensic psychiatry specialty training posts are part of a wider training programme.
The South London Forensic Psychiatry Training Programme is a three year scheme leading to an award of a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) in Forensic Psychiatry. Training posts are based at four Trusts that run major forensic services, and two world-class academic institutions:
West London Mental Health NHS Trust, hosts posts from both parts of the South London scheme
Trainees will be based in either the South-East or the St George's parts of the scheme, but during the three years will spend up to 12 months in posts on the other part of the scheme, plus 3-12 months (typically 6) at Broadmoor Hospital.
At least one post will be for 12 months. Generally a trainee's initial placement will be in medium security. Other posts may be for 6 or 12 months' depending on training needs and individual preferences. The changeover to different posts is in August and February. Trainees are an integral part of the services and teams to which they are attached.
Trainees remain under the tutelage of the same training programme director (TPD) throughout the rotation.
Training plans are discussed at the initial interview with the TPD at the beginning of the training programme and thereafter at regular intervals.

Training and education is vital to the development of our staff and their job satisfaction. We promote the development of our staff and aim to offer them multidisciplinary skills.
We have close links with Kingston University and St George’s University of London through the joint faculty of Health and Social Care Sciences. The faculty offers our staff a continued professional development programme. This allows individuals to reach their full potential while ensuring staff are equipped with the skills to meet the demands of patients. A wide range of clinical and professional training is available for: nurses, doctors, psychiatrists, therapists, psychotherapists and psychologists.
Many courses offer students the option to train on a flexible or part-time basis. This enables them to combine training with other commitments.
We provide research training for all interested staff and are committed to developing multidisciplinary research. We organise regular research seminars, and provide access to postgraduate research qualifications.
