At our lunch meeting last week, our guest speaker was Doctor Justin Wilson From Surrey and Borders NHS Trust.

They are one of the leading providers of specialist mental health, drug and alcohol and learning disability services for people of all ages in southern England.

Helping people to live their lives well, with high quality treatment, support and care focus on the specific health and social care needs of each person to improve their mental and physical wellbeing.

Justin joined the trust as Co-Medical Director in November 2015.

Previously he was Medical Director of Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, a mental health and community trust, for over six years.

He has worked as a consultant psychiatrist in a variety of NHS and independent settings, particularly within Learning Disability services.

Justin gave us an insight into the work he does working with a real variety of patients of all ages. He also touched on the number one problem facing all trusts in the future, the number of patients with dementia as the population in the UK lives for longer.
