As you are likely to already to be aware, following the Junior Doctor Contract Dispute in England, the PTC launched their own review into morale and training within Psychiatry across all four nations.

 We are imminently due to publish our report 'Supported and Valued?', which is fully backed by the College, but would be grateful if you could complete the following short survey by SUN 12 MARCH to help add weight to our findings.

This is a huge opportunity for us to improve our training and have your voice heard at the highest level. 

Help us, to help you, and thank you in advance for you support.

Best Wishes,

The Psychiatric Trainees' Committee
