Dr Wilson is a Consultant Perinatal Psychiatrist at the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust.

Dr Wilson trained on the Maudsley rotation as both a General Adult Psychiatrist and specialist Perinatal Psychiatrist.

In her NHS practice Dr Wilson works as the Consultant Perinatal Psychiatrist for a busy and growing team in South London.

These are aimed at a multidisciplinary audience both within primary and secondary care and across social care. She holds a PGCE qualification in Clinical Education.
