Our Faculty is open to Consultants, Associate Specialists, Staff Grades and Higher Trainees in psychiatry throughout Scotland. We also encourage core trainees and foundation doctors to attend our meetings. We meet two or three times a year to discuss relevant issues.
Chair: Dr Phil Crockett
New teaching resource
Please take a look at a new training video which has been developed about men and eating disorders. The team who developed it now have
RCGP accreditation for their training module and asked if ScotFED might be able to use it. They have made a specific link for RCPsych so they can evaluate any feedback they get from it and compare with RCGP feedback.

Further to the recent Faculty Election, we are pleased to announce that Dr Philip Crockett has been appointed as the new Chair of the Eating Disorders Faculty in Scotland. By way of introduction, Phil writes:
"Following on from the good work of my predecessor, I hope to be looking to how ED services across Scotland can be helped to continue the strides they have taken in recent years in terms of quality of services. There is still much to do in terms of ensuring that there are enough resources in all the areas that need them, and a need to continue to support improving training and supervision for clinicians and medical students in the field. It will be important to continue to attract the Eating disorder clinicians of the future. I believe also there are still major areas where training and education of other professional groups , especially in community settings, should be enhanced. Likewise better links with those colleagues need to be formed and sustained. National efforts to increase research in the field of eating disorders in Scotland need to be encouraged. I look forward to contributing to the work of the College on behalf of the Scottish Faculty of Eating Disorders."
