Matthew Elswood, MRPharmS
Matthew has been a pharmacist for a little over a decade; working in Mental Health services for the majority of this. After completing the clinical diploma with Cardiff University as a basic grade in the Royal Gwent Hospital, in South Wales, Matthew proceeded to complete the Psychiatric Certificate and Diploma whilst working in Gwent and Milton Keynes, where he also completed research with Ian Maidment and the NPSA, looking at medication incidents in Mental Health and Learning Disability settings.
In February 2016, following a spell in Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health Foundation Trust, Matthew was appointed as Chief Pharmacist at Nottinghamshire Healthcare, a large provider of Mental Health and Forensic Services, Community Health Services and Offender Healthcare. In March 2017, Matthew graduated from the NHS Leadership Academy Nye Bevan Programme. Recently, Matthew has taken up an Honorary Associate Professor role at the School of Pharmacy, University of Nottingham.
Matthew’s interests and passions are Mental Health (with a particular interest in perinatal), clinical pharmacy, leadership, politics, twitter (@elswood_matt) and (what some might describe as hideous) electronic music DJ.
