As the new Chair of the Specialty Doctors’
Committee, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce
myself. I am a Senior Specialty Doctor at St Andrew’s Healthcare in
Essex. St Andrew’s is the largest charitable provider of NHS
I completed my Basic training in Psychiatry in
the North East prior to my current job. I feel strongly that
Associate Specialists and Specialty Doctors are making significant
contributions to mental health services.
This committee will make Specialty
Doctor/Associate Specialist input to College processes more formal
and will acknowledge the contribution of this group of doctors,
which is very important considering the challenges health services
face at the moment. We will work to help Specialty doctors and
Associate Specialists to integrate and engage with other committees
in the college and to take leadership roles in providing high
quality care for our Service users.
I believe Specialty doctors and Associate
Specialists need to be involved in service development and the
changes happening in the Health Service at the moment. I can assure
you that profile of SAS doctors will be raised within the College
and I’m looking forward to work closely with the SAS doctors and
their representatives around the country. Please do get in touch
with me via email.
