I have complained to the Faculty of Forensic Psychiatry about the marginalization of civil forensic psychiatrists (see report). Justin Barry-Walsh, the chair has been very responsive. The definition on the College website has been changed. Forensic psychiatry is the subspecialty of psychiatry which interfaces with the law. ( It did read – Forensic psychiatry is a psychiatric subspecialty relating to the law and the assessment of mental health in the criminal justice system). A survey of all the members of the faculty will shortly take place to understand the numbers of people involved, the scope of the work and what will be required in the future regarding conferences,training etc.
