During core training I have been interested in the area of sustainability, noting that with an increasing population and stagnant budgets, services will need to adapt to maintain quality healthcare provision and future-proof themselves. I have now started working as an ST4 in dual training general and older adult psychiatry.
I worked with the sustainability fellow Dr Daniel Maughan and others on the Sustainability in Psychiatry Occasional Paper. I have now been appointed as a Sustainability Scholar; a 1-day per week programme, enabling me to further my interest in this area and work with CCG's to help think how to implement the newly constructed sustainable commissioning guide.
Other things about me: I am an avid distance runner and play the drums!
