Dr. Sohom Das

Half Psychiatric doctor, half opinionated human being

I am a Consultant Forensic Psychiatrist. I have worked in psychiatry for over 12 years in a variety of settings. I now mainly work within the Criminal Justice System (within a major prison and in a criminal court in London). I also run my own medico-legal practice (www.sigmadeltapsych.co.uk); through this, I carry out a range of psychiatric assessments as an expert witness for the criminal and civil court. However, my most challenging role is a mediator between two arguing young boys (who are my progeny).

What I do for a living (Consultant Forensic Psychiatrist)

I am a Consultant Forensic Psychiatrist. I have extensive experience in undertaking medico-legal assessments; I regularly prepare high-quality reports on a number of psychiatric issues for a variety of courts, including criminal court, civil court, immigration tribunals and Mental Health Review Tribunals. I have authored in excess of 250 reports in my career.
