I am always trying to find better ways of communicating directly
with members. I want to gather your on-the-ground knowledge,
intelligence and concerns to best support you all in what are – and
will continue to be – difficult times.
To this end, I do have an open door policy –
if individual members want to talk with me directly they can. Many
of you write to me, and I endeavour to address your concerns or,
better still, utilise your creative solutions to challenging
situations and share them with other members.
The major channel of two-way information
exchange is via our Council, especially through those Council
members who are Chairs of Faculties, Divisions and Sections. I stay
in regular contact with the Chairs of RCPsych in Northern Ireland,
Scotland and Wales so we can track how differing policies are
impacting on service delivery across the UK and how, more often
than not, UK-wide economic restraint is leading to similar
endpoints in each country.
The monthly eNewsletter reaches out to many
members, and we keep you updated on policy and parliamentary activities through the website.
And the most immediate way for me to communicate with you is via
this blog, which I’ve been writing since becoming President. I also
plan to start updating you all with a brief summary of the outcome
of our Council meetings, with action points.
If you as members can think of other ways to
improve my communication with you, then please let me know.
If you would like to post a response to Sue's blog, please
email your message to the Website
Manager, who will be pleased to upload it to the website.
