Photo of Dr Karim DarKarim has worked in the Trust as a consultant addictions psychiatrist for 12 years. He believes that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. He believes that no organisation can progress without learning from mistakes and without active involvement of its users. In Addictions, he has played a leading role in implementing the recovery agenda.

Photo of Carina SheridanCarina joined the Trust in 1999 as a registered mental health nurse (RMN) and she now leads on bed management across the Trust. She would like to provide a voice for nursing staff and ensure that the views of nurses are represented and communicated effectively.
