Dr. Nicola Whiteside, newly qualified from Nottingham, completed her final-year elective with her mentor Dr. Derek Glidden. She visited the Asperger’s Adult Service at Highbury Hospital and the Nottingham Centre for Transgender Health. She says “both sites were extremely positive environments to work in and I found both teams extremely engaging. I enjoyed talking about careers, social and political issues in conjunction with learning about various treatment pathways and holistic management. I thoroughly recommend this elective experience.”
Dr. Andy Prendergast has been auditing the monitoring of clozapine induced gastrointestinal hypermobility (CIGH) at Highbury Hospital with his mentor, Dr. Asad Malik. This is an important issue, with mortality from CIGH being as high as 20-30% when constipation is severe.
