The 2018 Annual Dinner took place on 15 November at We The Curious, Bristol.

It was a very enjoyable evening and we were delighted to formally congratulate those who recently obtained their Membership and the new Fellows in the Division. 

Dr Angela Rouncefield, South West Retired Doctors Representative, was our After Dinner Speaker and gave an inspiring talk entitled 'Genesis to Evolution: A Tale of one Psychiatrist's Journey'.


The 2017 Annual Dinner was held at the exciting We The Curious museum (formerly known as @Bristol) on 16 November.

Attendees were able to explore the stimulating exhibits, before sitting down for a delicious three-course dinner. After dinner, the college’s CEO Paul Rees gave an exciting speech.

The evening was a great opportunity to socialise, network, and hear the latest news on the College and the world of Psychiatry.


The 2016 Annual Dinner took place on 17 November at the Mercure Holland House Hotel, Bristol. 

The Division were fortunate to have Dr Adrian James (Registrar and past Executive Chair) speaking after the dinner, which marked the 10-year anniversary of the Division office.

It was a very enjoyable evening and we were delighted to also formally congratulate those who had recently obtained their Membership and the new Fellows in the Division.


The 2014 Annual Dinner took place on 13 November at the Future Inn, Bristol.  Dr Jan Falkowski, Consultant Psychiatrist in General Adult Psychiatry, spoke after the dinner about his experience of being stalked in one of the worst recorded cases of harassment.

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 those who had obtained their membership and those appointed Fellows of the College.
