My Professional Registration and Regulation
I am fully registered with the General Medical Council (GMC) in the UK with a licence to practice since 1999 and on the GMC Specialist Register for General Psychiatry since 2013 (GMC number 4579557). I am subject to medical revalidation every 5 years with the GMC and I have annual appraisals with my CQC-registered NHS trust employer.
I have been a Member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists (MRCPsych) since 2009. I undertake at least 50 hours of continuous professional development (CPD) annually to maintain and develop my professional and clinical knowledge and skills. I am indemnified for NHS and private medical practice.
My Background, Training, Skills, and Experience
I have been a British medical doctor and NHS psychiatrist for over 25 years, as well as a private Consultant Psychiatrist for over 16 years. I practise evidence-based medicine and psychiatry. As an Online Psychiatrist, I have been increasingly assessing and treating private patients throughout the UK via Online Video consultation.
Born, bred, and educated in London, I graduated from University College London (UCL) Medical School in 1999. Since 2000, I have trained and worked full-time as an NHS psychiatrist in Luton and Bedfordshire. I have been working part-time for East London NHS Foundation Trust (rated Outstanding by the CQC) since 2016. I have been working as a Consultant Psychiatrist (General Adult Psychiatry) and psychotherapist since 2008. I have been successfully treating private patients since 2007.
I have extensive experience in assessing and providing evidence-based treatment for adult patients suffering from Adult ADHD, Addictions, Anxiety, Bipolar disorder, Depression, Psychosis, PTSD and OCD. I have special interests as an Adult ADHD Psychiatrist and psychotherapist having completed further training in Adult ADHD assessment, diagnosis and treatment, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Human Givens Therapy. Appreciating the mind-body link, I effectively use talking therapies and medication only when needed in combination for the safe and timely recovery of my patients. I am experienced in preparing GP reports and independent Expert Psychiatric Reports for the Courts, Solicitors, Occupational Health departments, private companies and private patients.
While English is my first language, I can also speak and understand Bangla (Standard Bengali) fluently.
