Dr Angela Karen Johl

GMC No: 3206153

I qualified from Sheffield university in 1985. Shortly thereafter I spent a year in New Zealand gaining experience in a variety of specialities before returning to the UK to start psychiatric training which I completed in 1993. I worked in Nova Scotia, Canada for the subsequent 10 years in a variety of roles: consultant in general adult psychiatry; in a tertiary service for early interventions; tertiary centre for mood disorders; lecturer in Dalhousie medical school; clinical director of primary care mental health. The latter was probably the most fulfilling work I have ever done, since it included setting up a shared mental health service with primary care and working with homeless services and housing organisations resulting in a large grant to build supportive housing for people who were homeless and had mental health problems. I was lucky enough to receive a RCPsych (Canada) presidential award for services to vulnerable populations for this work. I returned to the UK in 1993 to work in Cumbria and have had the privilege to work in a number of roles including: postgraduate tutor; locality clinical director; network director; clinical work in inpatient, community and early interventions; LNC chair; RCPsych northwest mentorship lead; CQC specialist advisor; Mental health tribunal psychiatrist. I am now in the process of winding down prior to retirement and currently working clinically part time on a general adult inpatient unit.
