Melanie Doody

Patient Care Co-Ordinator

As Patient Care Co-Ordinator, Melanie follows the progress of every patient in each of our clinics, liaising with GPs, psychiatrists and the Smart TMS care teams. She also oversees the small team of patient advisors to make sure your treatment journey is as smooth as possible.

You are most likely to speak to Melanie once you’ve had your first course of treatment. She will be there to help you book a review if needed, subsequent treatment courses and any aftercare packages you choose. A fan of a good list (or 10), your care is Melanie’s main concern and she enjoys hearing the change in the voices of the patients who have recovered from debilitating mental health conditions.

In her spare time, Melanie enjoys spending time with her grown up children, especially if they go to watch the latest releases at the cinema!


Patient Advisor

Lucy works as part of the Patient Advisor team, helping our patients as well as answering any enquiries from people interested in exploring whether TMS treatment is right for them.

Fleur Grieten

Patient Advisor
(Currently on Maternity Leave)

Fleur works alongside Melanie and Corena to provide the best possible service to people enquiring about TMS, be it the patient themselves, a friend/family member or a medical professional. With her extremely caring tone, Fleur is quick to build strong relationships with the people she speaks to, helping them to decide on the best course of treatment. Fleur will do whatever she can to help, often calling patients each day to break the process down into smaller, more manageable tasks.

Primarily, Fleur speaks to enquiries for our clinics based in Bristol, Birmingham, Havant, Manchester and Leeds, but depending on patient numbers, she will lend a hand to Corena, too.
