Personal profile


  • Lead Psychiatrist for the Asylum Seekers and Refugees Clinic-Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust since April 2022: I set up and run a specialist clinic for asylum seekers and refugees in Norfolk. I started these clinics voluntarily in 2018 but stopped during the COVID-19 pandemic (from 2020-2022). In 2022, these clinics were formally set up as part of the Advancing Mental Health Equalities (AMHE) Collaborative of the Royal College of Psychiatrists.

  • Consultant in General Adult and Old Age Psychiatry (Older People Community Team. Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust, Norwich. UK) since June 2017. I lead a team of four Community Mental Health Nurses, two memory assessors, one memory treatment nurse and three junior doctors covering GP surgeries in the south part of Norwich city. I provide medical input to the care of older patients (those aged 70 years and above) with dementia and mental health problems and also younger patients with early-onset dementia.


  • Honorary Senior Lecturer and Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (Norwich Medical School, University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK) since August 2017.
