Dr Claire Atkinson - Consultant Psychiatrist, Haven Ward

Qualifications – MBBCh and MRCPsych.

Clare started as a consultant in the NHS in 2004 following completion of her higher training in child and adolescent psychiatry in Newcastle upon Tyne and has worked with older adolescents in an outpatient setting since that time and believes strongly that young people need to be active in the decisions that affect their lives whatever setting their care is delivered in.

Prior to joining Cygnet in November 2017 Clare worked in an adolescent crisis team that managed unwell young people in the community so she has a focus on safe early discharge to a less restrictive setting whilst balancing this with an understanding of the risks that cannot be safely managed in the community.
