The Chair's message - Dr Paul Rowlands

 Dr Paul RowlandsWelcome to the web section of the Faculty of General Adult Psychiatry. General Adult Psychiatrists make up 40% of the psychiatrists working in the UK and the Faculty of General Adult Psychiatry is the route by which our views are represented in the College and beyond. Our numbers and our workloads mean that we are the backbone of Psychiatry in the services in which we work and it is therefore important that this perspective is represented through the structures of the College and more widely.

 

Clinical networks

The Faculty needs an engaged and vocal membership and these pages are intended to provide an understanding of the College structures and how we relate to them. The Faculty has a number of Clinical Networks broadly organised around areas of interest:

 

It is easy to join these – just email our Faculty manager Lauren Wright at lwright@rcpsych.ac.uk and begin to join in the conversations. The Faculty is led by an Executive Committee which consists of elected and co-opted members.

 

Discussion points

Faculty is committed to the delivery of comprehensive, high quality secondary care mental health services and sees the role of well trained and well supported psychiatrists as central to this goal.

 

By promoting the importance of our every day work, the Faculty seeks to support all its members as they continue to show great commitment to their patients, their patients’ families and the communities in which they work even during times of financial pressure and constraint.  General Adult Psychiatrists are skilled in the management of complexity and risk and these skills are of immense benefit to the people who we see and the organisations and communities in which we work. As a Faculty we need to understand the challenges we all face as well as the successes we achieve. All members of the Faculty are part of this and the Faculty wants to continue to support our members vigorously in the work they do.

 

Issues for the next year include:

 

  • Continuing to promote the concept of parity of esteem for mental health
  • Promoting the importance of compassion as the central value for our work
  • Promoting the importance of addressing the physical health of our patients
  • Enabling effective engagement with commissioners
  • Contributing to developing ideas around the future of training (Shape of Training)
  • Contributing to the search for solutions to the challenges facing Acute Care.

 

The Clinical Networks provide a forum to discuss many of these issues and the Faculty welcomes a broad discussion around each one of them – what works well, how things have changed for the better as well as the difficulties that services face at times. All of us at every level can lead and the Faculty exists to encourage us all to see that we can do this.
