Staff Profile

Dr Patrick Keown

Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer



My current research interest is primarily in Health Service Research and the impact of recent changes in the delivery of adult mental health services in England. In particular current research projects focus on changes in the use of the Mental Health Act since the 1980s, the provision of mental health services, and Community Treatment Orders. I am also the local Principle Investigator for two MHRN adopted studies - ACTIONS and AMICUS. My clinical work is as a Consultant Psychiatrist in Rehabilitation and Recovery.
