    Professor of Liaison Psychiatry at King’s College London.

    Professor Amanda Ramirez graduated from University College London and then trained as a psychiatrist at Guys and St Thomas’ NHS Trust and over the past twenty one years has specialised in Liaison Psychiatry. Her particular area of expertise is the management of psychological distress among those affected by cancer.

    She is recognised throughout the world for her research on psychological distress in those affected by cancer, the mental health of cancer doctors and promoting early presentation of cancer. She leads a psychosocial cancer research programme at King’s College London. She is author of over 100 peer-reviewed scientific publications and is a Principal Investigator or Co-applicant on a number of major international and national collaborative research programmes with a grant income of over £12 million since 2005.

    She is a member of the National Advisory Committees for breast, bowel and cervical cancer screening. Building on her research work, she advises the Department of Health on policy development in promoting early presentation with symptomatic cancer, as part of the National Awareness and Early Diagnosis Initiative.

    As part of her NHS commitment, she is the National Clinical Lead for Supportive Cancer Care. Following her appointment by the National Cancer Director in 2001 she has co-authored the NICE guidance on Supportive and Palliative Care (2004). In particular she wrote the chapters on improving patient information, face-to-face communication and psychological support. She has subsequently led the implementation of national policy to improve supportive cancer care services. In particular she leads the work to develop and implement national cancer patient information prescriptions, as part of a partnership between the NHS, Macmillan Support and Cancer Research UK. She also led the development of the national training programme for senior cancer clinicians in advanced communication skills and she regularly facilitates communication skills training courses for cancer consultants.

    She advises the Department of Health on developing psychological support services for cancer based on the model she developed as the Director of the Dimbleby Cancer Information and Support Service at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital NHS Trust over 10 years.
