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

Speciality Doctors & Assoc Specialist Psychiatrists

Specialty Doctor and Associate Specialist Psychiatrists (SSASPA)

Any Specialty Doctor or Associate Specialist working in Psychiatry in Scotland can join the group - there is a one-off joining fee of £30 (payable to SSASPA, please send to Treasurer). This group has an educational and business meeting (which qualifies for CPD points) two times per year, providing an ideal opportunity to share information and ideas relevant to those working in a non-consultant career grade role. Please contact either of the joint chairs or RCPsych in Scotland for more information.

Next SSASPA Meeting

Date: Thursday 5th and Friday 6th May 2016

Venue: Dunkeld Hilton House Hotel

Programme: TBA

At the last meeting (7th and 8th May 2015) the group agreed NOT to seek drug company funding to make the meeting appeal to more individuals and sit more comfortably with the group. The cost will therefore be £170 for the overnight stay with dinner and hotel room or day delegate rate of £80 to include lunch and coffee. This can be claimed back from Study Leave Budgets.

The whole SSASPA group have agreed to help find speakers for 5th and 6th May 2016 and will receive regular prompts and encouragement to do so.  If you would like to make suggestions regarding future meetings please contact
