My professional experience:
After graduating in 1986 in Medicine, Surgery and Obstetrics at Galway, I did my postgraduate psychiatric training at Charing Cross and Westminster Hospitals. In 2000 I became consultant psychiatrist at Whipps Cross University Hospital, Bart’s Hospital Trust. In my role as liaison psychiatrist at Whipps Cross, I created a new acute consultation service, which has expanded greatly over the years. My medical student and psychiatric teaching commitments take me to the Royal London Hospital. I was also consultant in Substance Misuse for the North East London region.
I am currently consultant for Acute Psychiatry and lead consultant for Adult ADHD in North East London. I run a busy private general adult psychiatric practice in Harley Street and the Nightingale Hospital.
I have, over 18 years of consultant experience, developed deep experience in the assessment and treatment of the full range of psychiatric disorders, and have close working relationships with colleagues in general medicine, surgery, and in psychotherapy disciplines.
