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

HSJ, ACCEA and podcasts

Friday, 18 May

Earlier this month, I used this blog to express my concerns about an HSJ article indicating that NHS London planned to cut its mental health research and analysis budget. I thought you might like to see that HSJ ran a follow up story yesterday with some of my comments.

I was pleased to hear today that Health Minister Simon Burns has written to ACCEA asking them to launch the 2012 round of Clinical Excellence Awards. The Chairman of the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, Professor Sir Neil Douglas, has put out a statement welcoming the decision and saying that they look forward to the publication of the independent DDRB report in due course.

Since becoming President, I've enjoyed finding new ways of communicating with members - such as through this blog. On Wednesday I met Dr Chrissy Boardman, co-editor of our College eNewsletter, who introduced me to the world of podcasting. Chrissy asked me lots of questions about the work I do, and you can listen to our discussion here (just click on the 'Download' icon on the right-hand side).
