Professor Nihal Fernando was appointed Executive Medical Director in June 2020.
Nihal brings a huge amount of skill and experience and is a hugely popular and highly regarded colleague, having previous been Deputy Medical Director for two years.
In addition to his Deputy Medical Director role, Nihal has also been our Director of Medical Education for five years; growing the medical education team and transforming our approach to medical education in that time.
He has been a consultant psychiatrist with us for 12 years and is also a visiting professor for Manchester Metropolitan University.
In his spare time, Nihal has a love for cricket (bordering on obsession), fresh food and a love of the good music of Bruce Springsteen, Jimmy Hendrix and Texas!
