Exemplar appoints new consultant psychiatrist Dr Pete Marshall

Service users and clinical teams across all of our homes are set to benefit from Exemplar’s new psychiatrist and qualified doctor, Peter Marshall.

A qualified doctor and experienced consultant psychiatrist, Peter Marshall will be an on-site psychiatrist for a weekly clinic at our newest home, Lakeview, and will be working with the clinical teams across all of our homes to help provide more specialist support for service users who live with mental-ill health.

Specialising in the treatment and recovery of severe, treatment-resistant mental illness, Peter provides dedicated care to support Exemplar’s aim to maintain the care for people with complex needs who live at Exemplar.

Peter will be working across all Exemplar homes to deliver dedicated care, assessments and recommendations to support our aim to maintain the care for people with complex needs to prevent avoidable hospital admissions.

Working with clinical and care teams, Peter will work to improve links between home, community and NHS stakeholders to provide consistent, time-sensitive care for Exemplar service users.

Dr Peter Marshall, said: “Working within the homes on a regular basis will give me a good chance to get to know the teams but also allow me to get to know the service users’ needs better and will allow me to take time to work with them to add to their high quality care and treatment.

“As part of my role at Exemplar, I will be working closely with our residents to ensure they are getting the most effective care, work with the assessment team and also provide specialist support for the home.”

As well as being a member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, Peter has also developed specialisms in the treatment and recovery of severe, treatment-resistant mental illness.

Clinical director at Exemplar, Helen Baxendale, said: “Dr Peter Marshall is a very experienced psychiatrist and Exemplar are looking forward to welcoming him in to our homes to work with our home managers, clinical teams and care teams to provide the best possible care for our residents.

“Peter will be a great support to everyone involved in delivery of care as well as to our service users and enhance their quality of life. His support will be invaluable across all of our homes and will be a real asset to Exemplar.”
