New Executive Medical Director: Dr Sanjith Kamath

Following the retirement of Alice Parshall as Chief Medical Officer, we are pleased to announce that Dr Sanjith Kamath has been appointed as the charity's Executive Medical Director.

Dr Sanjith Kamath has been a Consultant Psychiatrist since 2007, working in both the NHS and the private sector before joining St Andrew's Healthcare in 2012. He has an interest in service development and is also a Founding Fellow of the Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management. 

Sanjith became Clinical Director for the Women’s Mental Health service in 2015, and in this role led on the development of new services across the charity. Last year he established our Women’s Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), an inpatient psychiatric ward that supports women in mental health crisis. More recently, Sanjith has been heavily involved in implementing outcomes driven, value-based healthcare across the charity.

Peter Winslow, Executive Chairman, commented: "We are delighted to welcome Sanjith to the St Andrew's Executive Leadership team and the board. With his considerable clinical experience I am confident that Sanjith will deliver visionary leadership and guidance across the charity."

St Andrew's has 4,500 staff across our sites in Northampton, Essex, Birmingham and Nottinghamshire, and offers a wide range of opportunities across a number of different clinical and non-clinical professions.
