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.
