The Royal College of Psychiatrists Improving the lives of people with mental illness

Ethnic Issues

Special Committee on Ethnic Issues

This Committee was set up following the Report of the Ethnic Issues Project Group (CR92).  It focused on carrying forward the recommendations set out in CR92 relating to psychiatric training, the need for awareness of issues concerning the use of mental health legislation, access to services, and dialogue with relevant user groups, and also included regular monitoring of MRCPsych examination results, College election results, and nominations for distinction awards. 

The recommendations of CR92 formed the basis of the College's Race Equality Statement of Intent, and Race Equality Scheme, which were developed by the Committee in conjunction with the University of Central Lancashire's Centre for Ethnicity and Health.  The Committee also played a key role in the sytematic review of College Structures.

The Special Committee on Ethnic Issues was disbanded at the College AGM in July 2008.  The work of the Committee has now been mainstreamed into all aspects of College activity.  Responsibility for oversight of equality and diversity within College work now rests with Dr Ola Junaid, Associate Registrar.  Contact rdaw@rcpsych.ac.uk
