I always aim to provide a high quality individual service to everyone I see and I am fortunate to have a wealth of experience to assist me in giving up to date evidence based care. I believe that feedback from patients I have seen in my clinic is so valuable and that their views on how I practice are really helpful to future young people and their families who are considering coming to see me for assessment and treatment. I collect anonymous feedback from the young people I see in my clinic to help me continue to learn and to ensure young people and their families are happy with my care.
