Dr Adam Joiner BSc MBBS MRCPsych MMEd
I am a consultant psychiatrist specialising in Adult ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and Early Intervention in Psychosis. I currently work in Lancashire NHS Adult ADHD service, but I have extensive experience of working in Community Mental Health Teams previously. I am skilled in the assessment and management of all mental health conditions in adults. I work with people aged 16 and over.
I also have a role as College Tutor, helping trainee doctors to develop as psychiatrists. I have published research in Medical Education. I am involved in researching diet & nutrition as related to mental health. I am developing expertise in how diet affects health & wellbeing.
I currently have no capacity to see self-funded patients.
I qualified as an Adult Mental Health Nurse in 1999 from the University of Central Lancashire.
During the last 20 years of nursing I have predominantly worked within the area of Adult Psychiatry, in both the acute in-patient and community settings. I have also worked within Substance Misuse Services and up until a few years ago held a Professional Lead Nurse role for a large NHS Mental Health Network.
In 2015 I was successful in qualifying as an Independent Nurse Prescriber from Edge Hill University, this led me to follow a keen interest I have for Neurodevelopmental conditions into a role as an Adult ADHD Specialist Nurse and Prescriber within the NHS and also within the Private Sector working alongside Psychiatry UK.
I am hugely passionate about nursing and ADHD and pride myself on providing high quality, compassionate person centred care for all.
Dr Heather Marshall MBBS
I am a consultant psychiatrist bases in North Cumbria working in the NHS in general psychiatry, with special interest in adult ADHD.
I have been a UK registered mental health nurse since 2000 and qualified as a nurse prescriber in 2014. I have worked in a variety of NHS adult, children and young people’s mental health settings through the years. I have continued my professional development throughout my career in children and young people's mental health, ADHD and practice education and I have specialised in ADHD services since 2013. I am currently working in an adult ADHD service in the NHS alongside my work with Psychiatry-UK.
I love having the privilege of working with people across all age ranges in my specialist field and I always aim to help people feel at ease, understand their symptoms and daily challenges in the context of their ADHD. I hope to help people feel able to live their lives to the fullest. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, comedy, music and crossfit!
