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

Midweek meetings

Thursday 26 April

Yesterday, I went to the first meeting held by the Department of Health to develop mechanisms to increase awareness among all professionals about the impact of human trafficking – and how to identify such individuals and refer them on for treatment.

Last night, I had a very pleasant and constructive meeting with colleagues from the Royal College of General Practitioners, looking at the implications of an additional fourth year of training for GPs. We discussed how psychiatrists and GPs can have shared training experiences and how we could try to match our trainees and GP trainees in placements – especially with the third sector. We also discussed how we could build on the success of the recent joint conference between our Faculty of Medical Psychotherapy and the RCGP, which brought into focus the importance of Balint groups and reflective practice.
