A few days ago I shared this post with the President of the College I have been a member of for over 20 years.
Today I received this e-mail, marked “High importance” from the “HR Department” of the Royal College of Psychiatrists which has left me upset:
This was the e-mail that I sent (in which I had copied in Professor David Baldwin, Chair of the RCPsych Psychopharmacology Committee):
I shared with Professor Wendy Burn one other e-mail. I included several other UK senior psychiatrists in this e-mail as it was simply a link to this update on a Sunshine Act for Scotland (on the 2nd anniversary since the Scottish public were consulted on it).
I will of course respect Professor Burn’s request. But let us be kind to one another even if we may have different views. Please.
