Mental Health Practitioners

Our mental health specialists are able to see most patients with new or ongoing problems of anxiety, low mood or depression. They can provide appointments up to 30 minutes.

Jon Boden

Lead Nurse for Mental Health

Specialist Mental Health Practitioner at Royal Primary Care Clay Cross and Grassmoor.

As a registered Mental Health nurse with a First Class Degree in Nurse Management and Professional Practice, I have experience in Eldery, Acute, Foresic and Crisis Team Nursing. Being a Non-Medical Prescriber I am able to diagnose and treat Mental Health conditions within a primary care setting.

I have a special interest in Support Orientated and Cognitive based therapy to underpin correct treatment and signposting to the most appropriate care pathway.

Marie Madin

I am a specialist mental health practitioner working for Royal Primary Care across the Clay Cross and Ashgate practices. This role is relatively new for me as I have spent most of my career working in forensic, crisis team,  rehabilitation, CMHT and Liaison team working in the Chesterfield Royal Hospital. I am hoping to start the none medical prescribing course this year which will enable me to expand my skills and knowledge around prescribing medication.
I was seconded to attended derby university for my mental health nurse training in 2003 after leaving a post as a support worker for learning disabilities and CMHT for many years.
My particular interests are promoting self help, by empowering individuals to be more proactive in their own recovery journey.

I have a particular interest in Solution based therapy and Psycho-social interventions to promote self recovery within the Primary care setting.
