In 2005 he was awarded a masters' degree with commendation in mental health law from Northumbria University.

He worked for over 10 years as a consultant in a community mental health team in High Wycombe and then for nearly 7 years in a Community Acute Service and an Assertive Outreach Team.

He currently works part time as a psychiatric liaison consultant with Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust in Stoke Mandeville & Wycombe Hospitals . As well as his clinical work, Dr Allen sits on Mental Health Tribunals. His private practice is based in Wooburn Green, near High Wycombe where he works with a group of other mental health professionals including psychiatric nurses and psychologists. He also has a clinic in Golders Green. Increasingly he sees people remotely from all over the UK.

He has a wide range of interests, from psychosis, through resistant depression and anxiety disorders to adult ADHD. Dr Allen also runs a special clinic for doctors.
