Dr Brain has been a significant contributor to the development of NHS mental health services in the local area over the past decade and is an Associate Clinical Director in the NHS Trust. For many years he also had a mental health advisory role to two local CCGs.

As a psychiatrist with over twenty years’ experience, Dr Brain is skilled in the assessment and treatment of the range of general psychiatric conditions including Anxiety and Panic Disorders, OCD, PTSD, Personality Disorders, Schizophrenia and Psychotic illnesses.
