Dr Campos is our Deputy Medical Director and specialises in child, adolescent, and adult mental health. He first started collaborating with Dr Giovanni Giaroli whilst working in the Redbridge NHS CAMHS service in 2014.
He firmly believes that excellent care can only stem from the integration between physical and mental health accessible through the use of expertly balanced psycho-social and pharmacological interventions. Dr Campos combines in-depth knowledge in the use of such treatments with lifestyle interventions and balanced nutrition to achieve the best possible outcomes in mental health.
Dr Campos graduated in Medicine and Surgery in Trieste, Italy, where he also worked as a primary care physician. Following his move to the UK and a period spent working in general and acute medicine, he trained in psychiatry within the NHS and he is currently an Honorary Psychiatrist within North East London NHS Foundation Trust.
Alongside his clinical experience in diagnosing and managing neurodevelopmental conditions, he underwent specialist training in assessing patients with Autism and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
Dr Campos collaborates in a multi-disciplinary setting to deliver either the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (2nd edition) (ADOS-2) or the Developmental, Dimensional & Diagnostic Interview (3di) as pioneered by the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, for detailed diagnoses of Autism where required. Furthermore, he has attended several courses and masterclasses educating him in a range of psychological interventions which he continues to integrate with the psychiatric care of his patients. He has a special interest in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) across the lifespan and an expertise in identifying the different presentations that are typical of each age group. He is our clinic’s specialist in the diagnosis and management of ADHD in adults.
Dr Campos has a passion for teaching and, due to his ongoing commitment to high quality education, he was awarded his current role of Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer within the Centre for Psychiatry at the prestigious Queen Mary University of London.
To further his knowledge of the latest treatments and scientific studies, Dr Campos holds a consulting role with a number of pharmaceutical companies and is regularly invited to deliver talks on pharmacological treatments and lifestyle interventions mainly focused on the link between physical and mental health.
