RCPsych in Scotland

Welcome to the RCPsych in Scotland.

As the professional medical body for psychiatry in Scotland, we set standards and promote excellence in psychiatry and mental healthcare.

We lead, represent and support psychiatrists nationally to government and other agencies, aiming to improve the outcomes of people with mental illness, and the mental health of individuals, their families, and communities.

We are a devolved nation and council of the Royal College of Psychiatrists. We have over 1,300 Members, Fellows, Affiliates and Pre-Membership Trainees in Scotland. Our administrative office, member lounge and meeting rooms are located at 12 Queen Street (1st Floor), Edinburgh, EH2 1JE.
