Dr Pravir Sharma
MB BS, MSc, DPM, MRCPsych
I have been a Consultant for over 15 years in the NHS. I have a special expertise in treating the elderly mentally ill. I run a busy inner-City community psychiatric service in the NHS. I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, a life time member of British Indian Psychiatric Association, a Royal College Examiner and Second Opinion Appointed Doctor with the Care Quality Commission.
I did my basic medical training at Kurnool Medical College, India and proceeded to train for Post Graduate psychiatry at the prestigious National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences, Bangalore, India. I then came to UK to specialise in Psychiatry of Old Age in 2002. I have worked as a Consultant in Psychiatry (Old Age).
I have a full time NHS job in an inner city urban area where I lead a community Psychiatric Team and have In- patient responsibility for an Acute Assessment Psychiatric ward. I love my job and consider myself privileged to be able to make a positive difference in peoples' lives in some small way, to the best of my ability.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Pravir Sharma at Spire include:
