Membership survey – closes midnight 13 June

Time is running out to take part in our first ever membership survey, and influence the future services and activities of the College.
The online survey opened to members on 19 May and will run until midnight on 13 June 2021.

Over 2,500 members have already completed the survey, which explores what you think about our services and activities and where you think we should be concentrating our efforts in future.

Our Registrar Dr Trudi Seneviratne said: “Your feedback is invaluable in shaping the future RCPsych.

“We want to hear from psychiatrists at all levels, and from all specialties. Make sure the views of your specialty are represented – take part in the survey.”

The survey is being conducted by market research firm Research by Design, who have carried out membership surveys with the Royal College of GPs, Royal College of Physicians and the BMA.

In the online survey, we are asking:

  • what you think of our services and activities
  • what we get right and what we don’t
  • whether – once the pandemic eases – you would mostly like to engage with the College via digital or in-person means.

The results of the survey will be presented at the meetings of the RCPsych Council and Board of Trustees in July and shared with members via the September edition of RCPsych Insight.
