Professor Wendy Burn, President of the Royal College of Psychiatrists said: “We all know that mental and physical health are just as important but it’s not often that doctors specialising in mental illness get the recognition they deserve. It’s fantastic to see psychiatrists awarded for their life-saving work.”

Paul Rees, Chief Executive of the Royal College of Psychiatrists said: “The Royal College of Psychiatrists fights tirelessly for mental and physical health to be equally valued and respected.

“And while mental health has long been undervalued, these honours are a clear sign that recognition of the important work psychiatrists do is on the up.”
