After qualifying from the University of Amsterdam Medical School in 1990, Jacobus moved to North Wales to complete his training as a General Practitioner and then specialised in General Adult Psychiatry and qualified in 2001. His first consultant post was in Lowestoft Community Mental Health Service. Since then he has worked in the community and on the inpatient units in both Great Yarmouth and Waveney. Jacobus moved to work as a community consultant in the Norwich Youth Service in 2017. Jacobus is very proud that in addition to his clinical work, he has been very active in teaching and training.
While he worked in Great Yarmouth and Waveney, he was the lead for the Community Eating Disorders Team. Alongside his passion for adult psychiatry, he nurtured a particular interest in neurodevelopmental disorders. More than ten years ago, he started a specialist clinic for the diagnosis and management of adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD and other neurodevelopmental disorders. Jacobus is very proud of his lead role in developing the Adult ADHD Service, offering county-wide high quality standardised assessment and treatment of ADHD. Since 2013, Jacobus has provided diagnostic work in ADHD and ASD for the University of East Anglia Student Support Services. In his private work, he has strived to offer high standards. He has continued to build on his experience and interest in Autism and ADHD.
Since the inception of the University of East Anglia Medical School, Jacobus has lectured and was a communication skills tutor with a strong involvement in the course development. He is a regular examiner at the medical school. Due to other growing work commitments, he has since had to reduce his involvement with the communication skills faculty.
Jacobus is a founder partner of Anchor Psychiatry Group. From January 2020 he has become a consultant psychiatrist for Milestones Hospital.
