Posted on: 18th November 2022

On Friday 18th November members of the Hockerill Medical and Healthcare Society had the opportunity to meet a former student who is now a qualified physician.  Charlotte Sullivan was a Hockerill Student from 2003 to 2010.  She qualified as a doctor in 2015 and is now a psychiatrist working with Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership and NHS Trust.  Charlotte arranged for resources from the Institute of Psychiatry to be delivered to the school and then spoke to the students at Medical and Healthcare Society about her experiences since leaving Hockerill and her career in medicine and as a Psychiatrist.  Charlotte then answered questions from students including differences between private and NHS healthcare, experiences at medical interviews and how the roles of psychologists and psychiatrists are different.
