Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Deenesh I Khoosal at Spire include:
General Psychiatry and Psychosexual disorders including gender identity disorders.
My work is centred in all aspects of General Adult Psychiatry, including anxiety disorders, depressive disorders, psychotic disorders and psychosexual disorders. My work in transcultural psychiatry and gender identity disorders has allowed me to contribute learned articles of research to several prestigious journals.
I have been a psychiatrist since the early 1980s, having completed my training in Oxford and Leeds. I started work as a Consultant Psychiatrist in Leicester in 1989. I have worked with rural populations as well as city-based people, including people from BME communities, refugees and asylum-seekers, who have taught me compassion and empathy, even in the face of considerable personal adversity.
I am currently working as a General Adult Psychiatrist as Lead Consultant in General Adult Psychiatry Division in Leicester.
I work one day per week at Northamptonshire Trust, providing an expert clinical service for people with gender identity disorders and I continue to examine for various organisations including the GMC PLAB Exams. I am also a Health Assessor and Medical Supervisor for the GMC.
I am a member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists Annual Awards Committee and was previously a media spokesperson for the Royal College of Psychiatrists and in the past I served on Lord Abedowale and Rosie Winterton (MP’s) House of Lords Special Committee on Institutional Racism.
Special Clinical Interests: General psychiatry. Post-traumatic stress disorders. Anxiety-related disorders. Psychosexual disorders. Medicolegal work.
