    About

    Professor Amanda Ramirez graduated with a medical degree from University College London in 1982. She then trained as a psychiatrist at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Trust and has specialised in Liaison Psychiatry for over twenty years. Since 2014 she has worked within the private sector, taking complex referrals from boroughs across London – her patients include celebrities and members of the royal family.

    She is particularly passionate about the management of psychological distress amongst those that have been diagnosed with cancer, the mental wellbeing of cancer doctors and early presentation of cancer - she has been recognised worldwide for her work within the subspecialty. In 2004, she was a lead author of the NICE Guidelines on Improving Supportive and Palliative Care for Adults with Cancer. Additionally, she has a number of wide-ranging research interests. She is an author of over one hundred peer-reviewed scientific publications and acted as a principal investigator on a number of major international and national collaborative research programmes, with funding of over £12 million.

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