Dr Roya Vaziri

Medical Director

Professional Background & Relevant Experience

On qualifying as a doctor in 1998 I have gained a breadth of experience from surgical specialities in the North East of England to completing my training in General Practice in the Southwest. My introduction to the speciality of Substance Misuse first came through my work as a GP providing care to people who were experiencing homelessness.

How I Came to Work at Humankind

Since 2012 I have worked with increasing responsibility at St Martin’s Healthcare Services, leading up to the post of Deputy Clinical Director for the Leeds service at the time of the merger with DISC in 2017.

What I Enjoy About Working at Humankind

Appointed the Medical Director for Humankind in 2018, it is with great pride and passion that I work hard together with all our staff and volunteers to deliver the highest quality care possible.
