Prizes in the South West Division

 

  • Innovation Prize
    For 2014 only, the format of this competition had changed.  Our 2014 Autumn Biannual Meeting was on the theme of innovation and we sought volunteers to present at an innovation clinic for advice, with the most interesting idea receiving a prize and certificate.  

    All Senior Psychiatrists and Psychiatric Trainees (individually or as a team) were invited to submit an example of innovation across the whole spectrum of modern psychiatric practice.  The competition was open to all Consultants, Associate Specialists, Specialty doctors, Lecturers, Senior Lecturers and Psychiatric Trainees in the South West Division who are either fellows, members or affiliates of the Royal College of Psychiatrists.  Those shortlisted presented their innovation at the Autumn Biannual Meeting on Friday 14 November and a prize of £500 was awarded to the best entry.
    This prize is now closed.

    The innovations that were not shortlisted are invited to submit their proposal to the South West Division's online forum for innovation, E-volution.  More information can be found about this on our Innovation page.
