RCPsych in Scotland Winter Meeting January 2023
09 January, 2023
The RCPsych in Scotland are very much looking forward to the return of a face-to-face Winter meeting in Glasgow next week. Interacting with Members and providing high quality learning events is very important to the team, and arranging these meetings and events is extremely rewarding. The pandemic introduced us to a new way of working and we were grateful to be able to offer online events for the first time which offered many positive benefits in terms of accessibility and convenience, but we know many members have missed the opportunity to meet in person.
Our biggest and most high-profile event in Scotland has always been the Winter academic event in January. Year on year. the Winter meeting is the most popular in the Scottish calendar and that has continued with the online format in 2021 and 2022. This year, the 2023 Winter meeting will take place in Glasgow on 20th January following widespread agreement that a return to the in-person format would provide more opportunity for networking and catching up with friends and colleagues. We are pleased to have a particularly strong line-up of speakers for this year’s event. The morning session will focus on Improving outcomes for people with personality disorder and the afternoon session on developments in mental health law.
From my own perspective, there is such a lively positive atmosphere at the annual Winter meeting and it is always a personal highpoint of my working year. I am very much looking forward to welcoming you back to the Glasgow Radisson Blu Hotel on Argyle Street.
Arranging these conferences takes a long time and a lot of planning and we are working hard on finalising a range of events for you throughout 2023, so keep an eye on our meetings and events page for updates. The 2023 calendar will be released shortly.
In the meantime, online registration is still open for the Winter meeting, and I hope to see lots of new and familiar faces next week!
