Dr Matt Fernando | 2011 – 2014

Having originally trained in London, Matt spent two years in Devon learning how not to be a psychiatrist. Returning to ‘the big smoke’ to train in psychiatry, he is now specialising in child and adolescent mental health. When not talking to patients, Matt can sometimes be found talking to birds. This is completely true, and in no way suggests that he believes that animals are able to talk back to him.

Notoriously computer-illiterate, Matt once confused a floppy disk drive with a toaster.

Beyond the classroom, Matt follows a long tradition of doctors interested in music. His other natural habitat is the concert hall where he can often be found singing in a myriad of different languages. None of which he even remotely understands.
