Avril Washington Consultant Paediatrician, Paediatric Mental Health and Complex Care
on behalf of Health Education England

Dr Avril Washington has a career-long interest in the psychosocial and mental health aspects of paediatrics. As a trainee, she spent 10 months working in a Department of Child and Family Psychiatry and, in 1997, obtained a Postgraduate Certificate in Therapeutic Communication with Children from the Tavistock Clinic, London.

On becoming a consultant, in 1998 Dr Washington developed a Behavioural Paediatric Service and paediatric input to the Psychiatric Mother and Baby Unit. The former is now the Complex Care Service providing a co-ordinated, biopsychosocial approach for children with complex paediatric problems.

In 2002, she was appointed to the RCPCH’s ‘Child in Mind’ project team to develop training materials in child mental health for paediatricians. She was part of the inter-collegiate working group that established ‘Children’s Mental Health’ as a new sub-specialty of paediatrics in 2007 and is now a sub-specialty training advisor on the Mental Health CSAC.

Dr Washington is the Immediate Past Convenor of the British Paediatric Mental Health Group, a professional advisor to the Association for Infant Mental Health (UK), and represents Paediatric Mental Health in a number of capacities on national projects and committees.
