I am a Consultant Liaison Psychiatrist. I completed my training at the St Thomas' and Maudsley Hospitals in London with specialist training in medical psychotherapy and liaison psychiatry. I have particular interests in the link between physical health and mental health and also in the way that health systems can provide the best healthcare to people. I spent a year conducting research into how to link mental and physical care at Columbia University in New York. Before that I was a Policy Adviser to the Royal College of Psychiatrists and a National Medical Director's Fellow at Public Health England.
