Dr Roger Howells is a consultant psychiatrist with over 25 years of experience as a psychiatrist, 20 at consultant level.
Dr Howells was formerly a consultant psychiatrist at the Maudsley Hospital, where for twelve years he was engaged in the treatment of adult psychiatric patients both in an inpatient and community/outpatient setting. He is skilled in the management of both minor and severe mental illness. He is experienced in the management of alcohol dependence, and comorbid drug and alcohol problems generally.
He was a trainer of junior psychiatrists and an Honorary Senior Clinical Tutor at Kings College Hospital providing teaching to clinical medical students attached to the Maudsley Hospital. Prior to this he was a Lecturer and Research Fellow at the Institute of Psychiatry, having completed his clinical psychiatric training at the Maudsley Hospital.
Before entering psychiatry he trained as a junior doctor in medicine at the Hammersmith Hospital, Brompton Hospital, St George’s Hospital and National Hospital for Nervous Diseases.
