A welcome and a thank you to our perinatal mental health clinical leads

22nd May 2018

Dr_Gillian_Strachan_NWC_SCN_PMH_clinical_lead.pngWe are delighted to welcome Dr Gillian Strachan who has recently been appointed perinatal mental health clinical lead for the North West Coast SCN, taking over from Dr Tania Stanway.

Dr Strachan was one of only 10 clinicians in the country to receive a Royal College of Psychiatry (RC Psych) bursary in 2017 to train with them to become a specialist perinatal mental health consultant psychiatrist.

She is also the perinatal mental health clinical lead for Lancashire Care Foundation Trust, provider of both the new mother and baby unit and the community specialist perinatal mental health service for Lancashire and South Cumbria.

We would like to thank Dr Stanway, our outgoing North West Coast SCN perinatal mental health clinical lead, for all her hard work and commitment. We are delighted too to still have the benefit of her expertise as she continues as clinical lead of Cheshire and Merseyside’s community specialist perinatal mental health service.
