Dr Audrey Ng
Consultant Psychiatrist

Dr Audrey Ng

Dr Audrey Ng has over 20 years of clinical practice working in the NHS and has been a Consultant since 2010. She believes passionately in individualised patient centred care and has a solid track record of setting up services aligned to this.

As a leading consultant, she set up an NHS service in Acute Hospital Liaison Psychiatry which sees patients from the age of 16 years and over with wide–ranging presentations including self harm, anxiety and psychosis often with co-morbid physical health problems. This service was accredited excellent by the Royal College of Psychiatrists shortly after inception. Since then, in addition to this work, she has innovated a new clinical model for mental health of older adults, which was awarded first place in the 2019 National Awards for Positive Practice Mental Health Collaborative. Her successful work in developing a frequent attender project in the emergency department eventually formed the operational model used in the North West London Commissioning for Quality and Innovation Scheme (CQUIN); this was also a success.    

Dr Ng holds dual training qualifications in both Adult and Old Age Psychiatry as well as a sub-speciality accreditation in Liaison Psychiatry. She has specialist expertise in treating a range of mental health issues including mood and anxiety disorders, psychotic disorders, personality disorders, cognitive impairment, substance misuse as well as those disorders related to physical health issues like medically unexplained symptoms across the age spectrum.

Training

Graduating from the University of Wales, College of Medicine in 1999, Dr Ng has worked in a variety of medical settings including in surgical units and the emergency department. She specialised in psychiatry in 2002 on the Guy’s, King’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals rotation (GKT) where she trained in the South London and Maudsley NHS Trust. She went on to complete her Specialist Registrar training on the Charing Cross and St Mary’s Hospitals rotation in London. She has a Master’s degree (distinction) in Psychoanalytic Studies from The Tavistock and Portman Hospital (UEL). In 2010, she was awarded the Royal College of Psychiatrist Faculty of Psychotherapy Essay Prize for her work. She has done research on mental health in young people and developed a model of therapeutic assessments using cognitive analytic therapy (CAT) and along with colleagues, has written a book on this; Self Harm in Young People: A Therapeutic Assessment Manual. She has written several book chapters such as Depression in Physical Illness and aspects of Psychodermatology. She has published research in cognitive impairment using techniques of infant observation and her work has been cited by leading specialists in psychotherapy.

Position at Priory

Presently Dr Ng divides her time between Priory and the NHS. At the latter, she has been very involved in setting up new services for the NHS, training staff and has held lead roles within the tri-borough liaison psychiatry services in West London NHS Trust. She is also a partner in Dementia Specialists LLP.
