Alex said, “I’m delighted to take on the challenge of supporting CNWL’s liaison psychiatry services, working with our acute trust and ambulance partners, and collaborating with our urgent and emergency mental health services. When any of us are unwell enough to need care in an acute hospital or emergency department it’s vital that we can also access timely mental health care when needed alongside medical care.”
