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

My Scottish meeting

Monday, 30 January

Great meeting on Friday of the Royal College of Psychiatrists in Scotland, with the hugely important topics of medical leadership and recruitment. Both the Registrar and the Treasurer spoke at the meeting, and Professor Sir Lewis Richie gave a particularly inspiring call for leadership and talk on the meaning and role of the general practitioner.

As you are aware, the member’s survey seeking your views on the Health and Social Care Bill closes at midnight tonight. We will get the results analysed very quickly, and will formulate a new position statement on the back of it. I will keep in contact with you via this blog and on the website about how we are moving forward. As of now, our position remains that of the Academy statement that was leaked to the Guardian last week.

I am beginning to see common themes across the UK and now intend to invite the leaders of our offices in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales to meet with me. I hope to discuss issues around the role of the psychiatrist, alcohol addiction and suicide prevention.
