Profile

Dr Joss Bray FRCPsych FRCGP

 I am a doctor with extensive experience and expertise across a wide range of medical practice including psychiatry, general practice, and substance misuse.

  • I am a Fellow of both the Royal College of General Practitioners and the Royal College of Psychiatrists in recognition of my work in substance misuse treatment.
  • I have worked in every tier of service provision both in the NHS and in the independent sector as well as prison environments up to Medical Director level.
  • I have a nationally recognised expertise in drug and alcohol treatment, and I have helped to produce NICE guidelines and I wrote an RCGP curriculum statement on the care of people with drug and alcohol problems.
  • I particularly enjoy supporting other clinicians – individually and in group settings – with a highly interactive style.
  • My personal ethos is “competent compassion” – doctors need both competence and compassion to do an excellent job, and I always seek to grow these values in my personal and professional life.
  • I am the founder of the Competent Compassion website – with the aim of improving the way people are treated in healthcare services – competentcompassion.org.uk
