Dr Anne Cremona

Consultant Psychiatrist, General Psychiatry

My qualifications:

  • MRCS
  • LRCP
  • FRCPsych

My professional experience:

I have been a consultant psychiatrist since 1985, having trained at the Maudsley Hospital, Charing Cross Hospital, and St Thomas’s Hospital. I have been a Member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists since 1980, and was appointed a Fellow in 1997. I have been a consultant psychiatrist in general adult psychiatry and alcohol misuse in East Berkshire, then at Hillingdon Hospital, and from 1997 to 2006 I was a consultant psychiatrist at the South London and Maudsley Trust, based at St Thomas’s Hospital, in general adult psychiatry and liaison psychiatry.

My personal statement:

I have many years of experience with treating most psychiatric problems, including depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, OCD, and food issues, and I also have specialist expertise in the fields of alcohol and liaison psychiatry, that is psychological problems occurring with physical health problems. I have a particular interest in stress in the workplace, and in women’s mental health issues, having been the founding Chairman of the Royal College of Psychiatrists’ Women in Psychiatry Special Interest Group. I take a very detailed history at the first appointment as I feel that listening carefully to the patient’s story is the key to treatment, together with choosing the most appropriate medication or therapy for the best care for each individual. I particularly enjoy working with my patients on a shared decision-making model whenever possible, and with a multi-disciplinary approach. I have practiced privately for many years both at the Nightingale Hospital London, and in the City.

Additional information about my research, publications and interests:

Most of my published research has been in the field of alcohol misuse, and women in psychiatry.
