Consultant in Public Health
I live and work in the North West of England. Currently I am lead doctor for Smithtfield services, an inpatient drug and alcohol detoxfication unit in Manchester, and lead doctor for ARCH Initiatives, a third sector organisation who provide community drug services in Merseyside. I also work part-time as a general practitioner in St Helens and Bolton. I am the RCGP co-lead for developing alcohol training. I started working in substance misuse services in 1993 with a background as a general practitioner and public health consultant.
As an organisation, we continue to function during the developing pandemic.
We are following all government and Charity Commission guidance in respect of staff and reporting issues.
Our funding schemes remain open and we are continuing to programme our conferences planned for November 2020.
