Dr Daniel Harwood DM FRCPsych

Facilitator & Consultant Old Age Psychiatrist and Clinical Director, Mental Health of Older Adults and Dementia Clinical Academic Group.

At: South London and Maudsley NHS foundation Trust

I am a consultant psychiatrist at SLAM and Clinical Director for Psychological Medicine and Older Adult Services. My clinical work is mainly in the Lewisham Care Intervention Team; a nurse and psychology led service which works with care homes to deliver psychosocial interventions for people with behavioural and psychological symptoms and distress in the context of dementia. I also work at Croydon Memory Service. My research interests have been in suicide in older people and more recently I have been working with colleagues to try and improve the safety of prescribing for older people in our services. Prior to moving to London I worked at the Isle of Wight Memory Service working in inpatient, community, clinic, care home, and general hospital settings.
