“Always calm and reassuring, he makes thorough assessments of risk and safety and provides patients with dependable safety plans. Leading by example, Dennis is reliable, straightforward, and diplomatic,” it added.

Singson is a community mental health nurse and nurse prescriber working with the Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment team.

He was cited for coordinating the development of a mental health hub consisting of a general practitioner and a clinical pharmacist and upskilled colleagues throughout his practice, improving the care of people with anxiety, depression, and eating disorders, according to PNA-UK.

“His work has seen the reduction of antidepressant prescribing and referral to secondary services,” the PNA-UK noted.

Singson is currently the interim vice-chair of PNA-UK.
