The latest from the Devolved Nations
The College in Scotland has continued to be busy. We advertised CPS bursaries for IC21 and have had nine successful applicants (2 x FY, 7 x med students from across the Scottish medical schools).
We held a Psychiatry Workforce Steering Group meeting with colleagues from NES and the Scottish Government MH workforce unit, and are in the process of starting to develop a ‘State of the Nation’ report on psychiatry.

The Psychiatrists' Support Service (PSS) provides free, rapid, high quality peer support by telephone to psychiatrists of all grades who may be experiencing personal or work-related difficulties. Our service is totally confidential and delivered by trained Peer Support Psychiatrists (PSPs). Our PSPs are from diverse backgrounds and have received training in many different areas, to improve their understanding and ability to support all those who call the PSS. As a service, we are aware that the difficulties faced by doctors vary enormously. We will support you through whatever they may be, including burnout, workplace bullying and discrimination, serious incidents, as well as coping with stress and change. Our support service manager and our PSPs will talk with you in confidence, without stigma or prejudice.
The service can be contacted by phone on 020 8618 4020 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
