About the Service - Clinical Health Psychology Department

The Clinical Health Psychology Service has had a firm presence at Salford Royal Hospital for over 30 years, providing in-patient and out-patient support to individuals with physical health conditions. We work with adults with physical health problems to support then in adjusting to and coping with their physical health difficulties, aiming to reduce the impact of this on their lives and improving their quality of life.


We are based in Clinical Sciences Building (CSB).  Some of our team members also work on the wards within the main hospital, with some based within their specialist ward areas and others work from outlying medical units. One of our teams also works at Newbury Place Health Centre.


We have a team of specialist therapists that include Clinical Psychologists, Counselling Psychologists, Health Psychologists, Assistant Psychologists and CBT (Cognitive Behavioural) therapists. You can ‘meet the team’ on this page [link to meet the team]. We work in the following areas: (each to have a link to their specific page)

  • Bariatrics & Weight Management
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Gastro-intestinal
  • General Medicine
  • Renal


We work closely with medical and allied health professionals in each of these teams to deliver high quality psychological care alongside medical care. We are not medical doctors and do not prescribe medication. Please see each speciality for further information.


Please note that we are not a crisis team, and we are not able to provide on-the-day appointments. If you feel that you need urgent mental health support, or you do not feel able to keep yourself safe, then please contact your or GP, your local crisis team or attend A&E. If you are an inpatient at Salford Royal, or you do attend A&E, then you may be referred to the Mental Health Liaison Team. There is also an Out of Hours Helpline available.
