I specialise in mental health problems in people 65 years old or over. This includes mood disorders (such as depression, anxiety, bipolar affective disorder), psychosis and cognitive difficulties (such as memory impairment and dementias). At present I work as a Speciality Doctor in Old Age Psychiatry at Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Trust as a community psychiatrist for Daventry and South Northants .
I have been working with Dr Read for few years, during this period I found her highly professional and committed to her job; she is one of the key players in the team and also has excellent leadership skills which have made her popular among her colleagues. Dr Read is conscientious colleague; she shows great enthusiasm for her patients and colleagues. She has supported her colleagues during their difficult time in their career .
Once concerns picked up, several assessments took place very promptly, it was acknowledged that I was nervous and anxious and those who saw me tried to be re-assuring, although knowing outcome might not be what I wanted.
