Jim Lucey

Jim Lucey has been working with patients suffering from mental health problems for over 25 years. When people at their most vulnerable first arrive in his room at St. Patrick’s University Hospital, Dublin, they reveal their fears, traumas and very real human predicaments.

 

Professor Jim Lucey is Medical Director of St. Patricks University Hospital since 2008 and is currently Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Trinity College Dublin. He also maintains his clinical practice at St. Patrick`s where he works on the assessment, diagnosis and management of obsessive compulsive (OCD) and other anxiety disorders.

Professor Lucey was educated at St. Michaels College in Dublin and at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) where he qualified in medicine in 1977. He trained in psychiatry at St. Patrick`s Hospital in Dublin and at the Causley Hospital in London, graduating with an MD from Trinity College, Dublin and a PhD from the University of London. He is a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland and of the Royal College of Psychiatrists in London, as well as a member of the College of Psychiatry of Ireland.

In 1993 he was appointed Consultant Psychiatrist, and Director of Psychiatric Intensive Care in St. Bartholomew`s Hospital in London. He returned to Ireland in 1997 to become a Consultant Psychiatrist with the Northern Area Health Board (HSE) at Connolly Hospital working in the community of North West Dublin. In 2002 he was appointed to St. Patrick’s where he became the Director of the Anxiety Disorders Service and also Consultant Psychiatrist with responsibility for electro-convulsive therapy. He has been a Senior Lecturer in Psychiatry at the University of London (1993-1997) at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital, London, and at The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (1998-2002).

 

About St Patrick’s Mental Health Services

When Jonathan Swift, Dean of St. Patrick’s Cathedral and noted author, founded St. Patrick’s Hospital over 260 years ago, he did so because he recognised that people with mental illness needed a specialist service to provide care, treatment and a voice.

Today, St. Patrick’s is Ireland’s largest, independent, not-for-profit mental health service and aspires to be the recognised leader in:

  • the provision of quality mental health care
  • the promotion of mental health awareness
  • the protection of the rights and integrity of those suffering from mental illness

Now known as St. Patrick’s Mental Health Services, incorporating two inpatient campuses and seven community clinics, the organisation is driven by the same vision, energy and determination first demonstrated by Dean Swift in 1746.
