Dr Rebecca Slinn
Consultant Psychiatrist
Dr Rebecca Slinn

Dr Rebecca Slinn

Dr Rebecca Slinn was first appointed as a consultant psychiatrist in 2001, and has worked for more than twenty years in the NHS, holding consultant posts in psychiatry in Scotland and Gloucestershire. She has worked in the independent sector for 5 years and has had a thriving private practice since 2010.

Dr Slinn has a particular interest in the presentation of mental health problems in older adults including memory problems and dementia. She also has an interest in employee wellbeing and works alongside occupational health with large local public service and private employers.

Dr Slinn has a medico-legal practice, and is available to give expert opinion for the courts, tribunal services and individuals, as well as capacity assessments for wills and the like.

Dr Slinn has been a consultant psychiatrist at Priory Hospital Bristol since 2012. She is currently covering the eating disorder unit. She has previously been the lead in general adult wards in Bristol and also national lead for dementia for the Priory Group as a whole 2015- 2016.


Dr Slinn trained in medicine St Bartholomew’s Hospital Medical College in London and, after spending time in other medical posts including general practice, decided on psychiatry in the South West of England. She trained in general adult and old age psychiatry and is on the specialist register for both. This means that she is able to see anyone over the age of 18.

Dr Slinn has extensive experience in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of all common psychiatric conditions, such as:

  • Mood disorders including depression and bipolar disorder
  • Anxiety disorders including, panic disorder, generalised anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, phobias,
  • Personality disorders
  • Psychosis
  • Alcohol dependence
  • Eating disorder
  • Memory disorders

Research Articles and Published Papers

Dr Slinn’s research interests and publications have addressed suicidal thinking in those with dementia, short cognitive analytic therapy for self-harm and training in community psychiatry.

I strongly believe in giving individuals as much information as possible so that they can make informed choices about treatment.
