Dr Caroline Reynolds

GMC No: 4521994

I studied at Newcastle Medical School and graduated in 1998. I worked as a junior doctor in medicine, neurology and A&E in various locations across the North East, before commencing training in General Psychiatry in 2001. In 2004, I became a Member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, completed AC and Section 12 training and commenced specialist training in Adult Psychiatry.

I first worked in Eating Disorders in 2004, and continued this interest throughout my Specialist Training. I was appointed as a Consultant in the Richardson Eating Disorder Service in January 2011. Since then I have worked in Eating Disorder Services across the North East, in both In-patient and community settings.

My current role is to provide specialist assessment and management of adults with severe eating disorders. This involves running a 5 bedded in –patient unit, providing support and advice to medical wards and community teams. I am also involved in training junior doctors and medical students and developing pathways and protocols for eating disorders across the region.

In addition to my local role, I am also a Representative on the Royal College of Psychiatrists Eating Disorder Faculty Committee, and involved in advising on national policy. I deliver teaching and training on Eating Disorders to various professional groups both locally and nationally.
