About our Annual Dinner
The Division holds an Annual Dinner each year hosted by the Executive Committee, which all members of the South West Division are welcome to attend.
Free places are offered to new members in the Division to celebrate obtaining their MRCPsych, to new CT1s, and to new Fellows in recognition of this prestigious award.

The good food, great conversation and pleasant surroundings all made this an enjoyable evening and gave everyone an opportunity to catch up with colleagues from around the south west and congratulate new CT1s, new Members and recently appointed Fellows of the College.
