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

Dr Laurence Mynors-Wallis elected as new Registrar

Embargoed until 22 June 2010

Dr Laurence Mynors-Wallis has been elected Registrar of the Royal College of Psychiatrists. He starts his 5-year term of office this evening, at the College’s AGM, which is part of the 2010 International Congress in Edinburgh.

Dr Mynors-Wallis is a consultant general adult psychiatrist and medical director at Dorset HealthCare NHS Foundation Trust, and honorary senior lecturer at the University of Southampton Department of Psychiatry. He has been the College’s Associate Dean leading on revalidation for the last 3 years.

Dr Mynors-Wallis said: “I’m delighted to be elected Registrar, a role which I see as providing leadership for psychiatrists and working closely with all our Members throughout the UK.

“I have set myself 3 initial priorities, reflecting the needs of psychiatrists at a time of increasing financial pressures: increasing the support available to College members; reinforcing the role of psychiatrists as leaders within their teams and organisations; and increasing the number of enthusiastic young doctors choosing psychiatry as a career.”
