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

RCPsych in Wales

This month the RCPsych in Wales held its first ever Trainee forum in Cardiff. The event was attended by trainees (from FP2 to ST6) and medical students. Four Consultants on the Specialty Training Committee and an administrative officer from the Wales Deanery also attended. There was a presentation on the ‘Supported and Valued’ survey, the largest trainee led survey of all the Royal Colleges’. The event was successful, and all the trainees also got to have their say about issues affecting them, such as the MRCPsych course and academic exposure. The trainees present gave good feedback and were very keen for these forums to become regular events and the PTC reps in Wales plan to run them 3/4 times a year.

We also met with the Vice Chairs of each Health Board.  Following this we produced a report which identified a number of areas of common concern and how we can offer them support in their role as Mental Health Leads for the NHS in Wales. We met with the Chair of the RCGP, Dr Rebecca Payne to go over the areas of work that we have undertaken since January and to identify other areas we can work together on, such as Shared Care, IAPT, and End of Life Care.

We also had a visit from Paul Rees at our Executive Committee on 09 June. He outlined the ways he wants to improve membership relations and staff satisfaction. He also spoke about the importance of devolved nations and thanked us for the important work that we do.
