I have been a Consultant Child and Adolescent Forensic Psychiatrist within NTW since December 2001. Now I am a sole mental health Consultant for an Adolescent Medium Secure Service, managing complex adolescents with multiple primary mental health issues, and risk behaviours.
I also have several Medical Education roles;
1. Training Programme Director for Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services for Health Education North East. I manage and assess all the senior trainee’s within CAMHS.
2. College Tutor for CAMHS within NTW, where I manage the junior trainees within the Trust, who are currently placed in CAMHS.
3. Educational Supervisor for 2 Junior Psychiatric Trainee’s – each for a period of 3 years, during their junior training.
I additionally have been commissioned to provide a number of legal expert reports with regards to offending adolescents and have provided expert advice to the National Health Ombudsman service on a number of occasions.
