Kathryn has worked as Care-Coordinator in the NHS and as a Case Manager in the private sector, for patients with severe, and enduring mental health conditions and brain injuries. Acting as the central organising role for their care and treatment, Kathryn takes pride in creating detailed plans covering all domains within a holistic assessment. She works collaboratively with service users ensuring that their views and ideas are heard and equal, while developing effective joint-working relationships with all partners, including patients’ families, the Local Authority, mental health services and 3rd sector organisations.
