Joint Project

'The use of Language in Psychiatry'

The RCPsych in Wales is taking forward a project looking at the use of stigmatising language in psychiatry.  We are seeking a committed, enthusiastic ST4 – ST6 trainee to undertake a literature review, relevant research and provide a trainee perspective into this work.  The primary focus of this project is in relation to the language used to talk about mental health, mental illness and related issues.

It is expected that the final outcome will be a published discussion paper/set of underlying principals by March 2018.


The closing date for expressions of interest in this post is Friday 07 April 2017.  Trainees who are interested are welcome to call Siobhan Conway on 029 22 33 1081 for an informal chat about the post.

Clinical Advisors to the Public Service Ombudsman for Wales

In conducting investigations into complaints about Health Services, the Public Ombudsman for Wales needs to take professional advice from clinicians with appropriate knowledge and experience.  To date, this has usually been obtained from a central pool of advisers administered by the Health Service Ombudsman in England.  The Public Service Ombudsman for Wales is now seeking to obtain much more of the advice from within Wales.

Further information on the work of the Ombudsman in Wales is available here.
