Dr Pratima Singh MBBS, MRCPsych, MBA
Dr Singh is a community and adult psychiatrist working in a deprived, London suburb where she is based in a team that works closely with GPs to plan care for patients presenting with mental illnesses. Having had the advantage of several strategic leadership opportunities in her residency, she believes that a holistic approach in medicine presents a great opportunity to address the huge burden of mental health morbidity in the NHS. She is a strong advocate of intensive lifestyle interventions as a key tool in addressing chronic mental health conditions and the judicious and informed use of psychotropic medication. She also has a deep interest in understanding how systems of care influence the quality of patient care.
