We have strong links with the Welsh Psychiatric Society (WPS) who seek to promote issues specific to psychiatry in Wales and we host joint meetings with the Society twice a year.


Every two years there is a joint Meeting with Breton psychiatrists: "la Societe de Neuro-psychiatriede L`ouest". The Chairman of the Welsh Psychiatric Society is Professor Keith Lloyd.

  • Assessors on Advisory Appointment Committees (AACs) - If you have been a Consultant for more than three years, would you be interested in representing the College as an AAC Assessor? The College currently have a number of vacancies and urgently need representatives in all psychiatric specialties and in all Divisions/regions.

Core Values for Psychiatrists


The RCPsych in Wales has developed a draft set of Core Values for Psychiatrists.  Following consultation with the Executive Committee in Wales and a presentation to the delegates at our recent joint meeting with the Welsh Psychiatric Society, we are now seeking the views of the wider membership on this draft document.

The profession of psychiatry has values which it operates with and uses on a regular basis; but to date it has not articulated them fully, codified them or explained how they relate to each other.

The Core Values group is meeting again on 15 January 2016.  If you would like to comment on this piece of work, please send these to by 14 January 2016
