Dr Vishaal Goel

GMC No: 4767963

I completed my medical degree from Newcastle University in 2000 and went into training as a junior doctor. I began training in Psychiatry in 2002 in the North East and gained experience in number of psychiatric specialties including General Adult, Old Age, Forensic and Learning Disabilities.

I moved to London after gaining my Membership to the Royal College of Psychiatrists in 2006 where I worked in both Rehabilitation and Addictions Psychiatry. I also undertook an academic post as a Clinical Teaching Fellow at St George’s, University of London in 2009-2010, where I achieved a Postgraduate Certificate in Healthcare and Biomedical Education.

I began Higher Specialist training at the South London and Maudsley NHS Trust in 2010 where I further specialised in Liaison Psychiatry. I also had the opportunity to work at both the National Psychosis and Mother and Baby Units, furthering my interest in maternal mental health.

I have worked as a Consultant in Liaison Psychiatry at Sunderland Royal Hospital since 2013 where I have developed specialist clinics in psychosomatic medicine, maternal mental health, self-harm and long term physical health conditions.

I continue to have an interest in education and am an Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at Newcastle University and College Tutor for Hopewood Park Hospital trainees. I was also appointed Assistant Medical Director for the South Access CBU in 2018.
