It was with great sadness that the College learned of the sudden death on 9 November of prominent member Professor Sab Bhaumik OBE, who was an Honorary Fellow of the College, as well as a former Chair of the Intellectual Disability Faculty and the Trent Division.
Professor Bhaumik has long been a leading member of the College. As a keen internationalist, he was Chair of the Diaspora Groups Committee, which meets at the College, and a member of the College’s International Advisory Committee.
Professor Burn, College President, said: “I was shocked and saddened to learn that Sab had passed away over the weekend. He will be remembered for his intellect, his huge contribution to the care of patients and his global influence. Our thoughts are with Sab’s family and friends at this difficult time.”
The RCPsych will publish a full obituary for Professor Bhaumik on the College website soon and is planning ways to celebrate his life.
