About the Author

Dr Semple graduated in Medicine from Edinburgh University in 1992 and worked in the Neurosciences Department at Dundee Royal Infirmary before starting Psychiatry training on the Lothian Training Scheme. Subsequently he obtained a Wellcome Research Fellowship and afterwards was appointed as a Lecturer in Psychiatry and Honorary Specialist Registrar based at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital. During that time he co-wrote the first edition of the Oxford Handbook of Psychiatry, a text he continues to co-write and co-edit with Dr Roger Smyth. Currently working as a Consultant in General Adult Psychiatry at University Hospital Hairmyres, East Kilbride and an Honorary Fellow of the Division of Psychiatry at Edinburgh, he continues to pursue his clinical and research interests in the areas of neuropsychopharmacology, the management of mood disorders, ECT, disorders of sleep and wakefulness, hallucinations, and psychosis. He was elected to Fellowship of the Royal College of Psychiatrists in 2016. Dr Roger Smyth was born and educated in Belfast, Northern Ireland and came to Scotland to study Medicine at the University of Edinburgh. He trained in Psychiatry in South East Scotland. Together with a group of friends and colleagues he wrote the first edition of the Oxford Handbook of Psychiatry. Dr Smyth took up his first Consultant Psychiatrist post in St John's Hospital, Livingston in 2004, and moved to the Department of Psychological Medicine at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh in 2006 to specialise in Liaison Psychiatry.


This is another brilliant addition to the excellent Oxford Handbook series which seems to go from strength to strength ... this is an outstanding book that seems to cover a huge amount of territory in an educational and informative style ... Generally speaking, Oxford Handbooks are excellent but I would place this book one notch up and call it superb. * Dr Harry Brown MBChB, Glycosmedia *
Review from previous edition For the clinicians it is a good read especially for junior doctors who are on call and need a practical book to refer to. This book is well-written and well-organised with a good readable style. * BMA Book Awards 2014. Highly Commended *
