NIHR Development and Skills Enhancement award in Clinical Trials
I am currently completing a Development and Skills Enhancement award from the National Institute of Health Research, gaining skills in clinical trials. I also work as an Honorary Consultant Psychiatrist for Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust, where I currently provide input in to the Treatment Resistant Depression clinic at the Warneford Hospital and the PAX-D trial.
I recently completed my DPhil in the Department of Psychiatry, supervised by Professor Seena Fazel. I was also supervised by Professor Raymond Fitzpatrick, from the Nuffield Department of Population Health and Associate Professor Jonathan Cook from the Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences.
My DPhil project focused on understanding which outcomes are important for patients and clinicians in forensic mental health services, which was used to develop a new outcome measure for forensic mental health services called the FORensic oUtcome Measure (FORUM). This has complementary patient and clinician scales.
Previous roles include National Medical Director’s Clinical Fellow at the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges (2012-2013), Chair of the Royal College of Psychiatrists’ (RCPsych) Trainees’ Committee (2013-2014), Darzi Fellow in Medical Education (2014-2015) and President of the European Federation of Psychiatric Trainees (2017-2018).
