Executive Committee

The Division comprises all members and Associates of the Royal College of Psychiatrists living or working in the West Midlands. 

The Executive Committee communicates College issues to all members of the Division.  All mental health trusts in the region have either an Executive Committee Member or a Link Member who is responsible for transmitting information locally.  The Committee also transmits members' concerns to the College.

The Committee agenda includes both service and professional issues and the following sub-committees have been formed to concentrate on specific areas: 

  • Medical Directors
  • Independent Psychiatrists.

The Executive Committee acts as a liaison point for other interested bodies in the West Midlands and Regional Specialty Representatives from each Faculty are invited to attend.
