Our Board of Trustees
Irene Weinreb, Chair
Irene Weinreb joined the board of Trustees in 2015. She retired from Medicine in 2017 having been a GP and senior partner in the NHS general practice at Imperial College. She has extensive mental health and management experience in general practice, the College Health Service and in the NHS locality of Westminster. She lives on the border of Haringey and is very familiar with Open Door and its work with adolescents and young adults as this area of mental health care is a particular interest of hers.
