‘I love psychiatry — it is all so interesting! I particularly enjoy the interface between medicine/surgery and psychiatric conditions. My main research project (MD thesis) was on burns and other trauma. Currently I have a weekly psychiatric Occupational Health Clinic, see patients at the Brain injury Rehabilitation Unit and am involved in the live donor transplantation service. I see medico-legal cases with trauma, medical negligence and employment being my special interests’.
