The Royal College of Psychiatrists Improving the lives of people with mental illness

RCPsych in Wales

It has been a busy few months for the RCPsych in Wales.  Our Chair, Professor Keith Lloyd met with the Health Board Vice Chair’s in April to discuss (among other things) our Manifesto  and recruitment and retention.  Wales has one of the lowest rates of recruitment and retention in the UK and we are working hard to address this issue.

Core Values for Psychiatrists has received approval from the Policy and Public Education Committee and Council and we are delighted that we are now at the publishing stage.  We now need to focus our attention to how we can embed the Values into Psychiatry training and practice and assessment.

Welsh Government and the National Assembly for Wales are keeping us busy with various consultations.  We have responded to Wales’ first ever Dementia Strategy consultation, an Inquiry into prescribing practices of antipsychotic medication in Care Homes and the Parliamentary Review.

We met with the Lead for the new Health Education Wales organisation currently being developed.  The new organisation will be ‘open for business’ in April 2018 and we are pleased to be engaged in this process.

We are excited to be re-vamping our public engagement function here in Wales and have formed a small working group to scope this work.  Updates to follow.
