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

Committee Members of the Professional Practice and Ethics Committee (PPEC)

The Professional Practice and Ethics Committee (PPEC) is responsible for providing guidance on psychiatric professional practice and ethics, including issues of confidentiality, probity, conflict of interest and translating policy into practice.

The Committee includes individuals who have knowledge, interest and expertise in these areas. Committee members work with other College committees, faculties and special interest groups and engage in relevant activities of the College, in particular the work of the Policy and Public Affairs Committee. They also receive queries from College members and others and are able to offer advice on these matters.

The Committee meets at the College up to three times per year, in addition to doing work between meetings electronically. There are three vacancies, arising as a result of retirements, and we would like to recruit to these.

We would particularly encourage members who work in the Old Age and Intellectual Disability specialties to apply, given that the Committee is keen to have a mix of people from different psychiatric specialties. Members should have an interest or expertise in one or more of our core areas of work, as described above.


To apply to become a member of the Committee, please email a short CV (no more than 2 pages of A4), with a covering email setting out the reasons why you would like to join the Committee and what you would bring to the work of the Committee, to The new members will join the Committee from April/May 2017, and will attend their first meeting in June 2017.

Deadline for applications: 3 April 2017.

Interviews: TBC.
