New Clinical Director for Westminster
13 May 2019
Dr Graham Behr is the new Clinical Director for Westminster, replacing Dr Nikki Rahman, who is standing down.
Graham trained as a psychiatrist in South Africa and has been working in Westminster adult mental health services since 1998. He has worked in hospitals, community teams and in primary care teams, supporting GPs to manage mental health problems including the complex issues faced by homeless people.
He has experience managing the difficulties of the many migrants and refugees who make their way to Westminster.
More recently he has taken a lead role in the reshaping of community mental health services towards a model of integrated primary and secondary care.
Dr Jo Emmanuel, Medical Director for Jameson Division said, “Graham is an excellent choice for this very busy and demanding service – literally in the heart of London. My great thanks to Nikki who is moving into another role to concentrate on clinical work; she has provided great clinical leadership to the service.”
