Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry

Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry provides a team of professionals that is responsible for delivering psychiatric services to adult inpatients of the Kingston General Hospital who manifest psychiatric symptoms as a result of, or in addition to, their medical issues. The mission of Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry is to strengthen and enhance consultations for this group of patients and to liaise with all medical teams involved in the care of our patients.

Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry also provides outpatient psychiatric services to those patients that have both medical and psychiatric conditions referred by a number of ambulatory clinics within Hotel Dieu Hospital, St. Mary's of the Lake Hospital, Kingston General Hospital as well as numerous physicians and specialists in Kingston and surrounding areas.

Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry is involved in the Ontario Telemedicine Network providing weekly Telepsychiatry Services via videoconferencing to patients residing in the James Bay Communities, and works in close conjunction with the physicians and nursing staff at the Weeneebayko General Hospital.
