I am a Consultant in the Sunderland South Tyneside Children and Young People’s Service (CYPS). I started this role in June 2015. I am involved in medical student teaching at Sunderland Royal Hospital. I am interested in patient information and I used to be a member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists Child & Adolescent Faculty Public Education Board. I updated some of the College’s information leaflets for children and families. I carried out a national online survey looking at Children and Adolescent Mental Health Service professionals’ use of patient information materials.
