On 26 October 2018 I wrote “A Farce-The Faculty of Forensic Psychiatry” and sent a strongly worded document to the faculty criticising the lack of interest and resources given to those of us who did civil work. It is now a year later, what has been done? The definition on the College page has been changed, a questionnaire, most of which I wrote, was circulated and….that’s it!
I am presenting at the Faculty joint meeting in Singapore in early November. One of my complaints was the lack of space given to civil forensic work at conferences. So, out of the almost 60 papers how many are in this area? I counted 6.
Maybe, as some have urged me, it is time to move on, this Faculty is not making me feel welcome.
