I was born in Malta where I also achieved my medical qualification. After my foundation training, I pursued further training in Psychiatry in Malta for 3 years.
I moved to the UK in 2007 to pursue completion of my specialisation. I started with a few rotations of core training following, which I spent 3 years working as a Specialty Doctor in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry. After I passed my examinations and became a Member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists I entered the final phase of my training.
Since I completed my training I have worked as a Consultant Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist in Northumberland CYPS supporting the whole region.
More recently, I have been appointed as Lead Consultant for Working Age Adult Community Services supporting Consultants in Newcastle & Gateshead.
