I believe in providing evidenced based, high quality, patient-centred clinical care.  I am always eager to carry out research in order to find the most innovative/suitable treatment for my patients.

I have received five NHS Clinical Excellence Awards for being innovative and creative and I have also been nominated for the Unsung Hero Award, Future Focus Award, an Excellence in Research Award. 

I actively participate as a member of the Trust’s Drug and Therapeutic Committee in drafting various prescribing guidelines (depression, bipolar disorder, etc.)
