Consultant in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

Dr Derek Blincow


Dr Derek Blincow is a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist who has expertise gathered from over twenty-five years work in all aspects of child and adolescent mental health.

He has additional expertise in adolescent psychiatry, the impact of trauma and adversity as well as the mental health aspects of Autistic Spectrum Disorders and other complex neurodevelopmental conditions.

If you have concerns about your child at home, or at school, please do give the office a call to find out whether Dr Blincow can assist. If your son or daughter appears withdrawn, is exhibiting behaviour that is out of character, expressing negative thoughts, struggling socially, a psychiatric assessment may help to provide a diagnosis, and in turn, recommendations of treatment options. Dr Blincow also has expertise in complex neurodevelopment disorders and offers assessments to diagnose ADHD, Aspergers and Autistic Spectrum Disorder. He is happy to liaise with parents, carers or schools where appropriate to discuss recommendations for support strategies.

Dr Blincow is available for clinic consultations on Mondays at the Priory Hospital Ticehurst House in East Sussex and on Wednesdays at 21 Wimpole Street.

He is also an Expert Witness to the Courts and for national bodies and can be instructed to provide assessments through Expert in Mind.
