Bridging the Mind-Body Gap.....Like You Mean It
Dr Pratima Singh is a community and adult psychiatrist working in a deprived inner city London borough 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 burden of mental health morbidity in the NHS.
Dr Pratima 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.
