Dr John Tully from the Department of Forensic & Neurodevelopmental Sciences has been named Higher Psychiatric Trainee of the Year 2016 by the Royal College of Psychiatrists (RCPsych). The annual RCPsych awards mark the highest level of achievement within psychiatry, and are designed to recognise and reward excellent practice in the field of mental health.

Dr Tully led research on a seclusion reduction strategy at Broadmoor Hospital during his Academic Clinical Fellowship in forensic psychiatry at the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM) and joined the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) this year as Wellcome Trust Clinical Training Fellow.

The Higher Psychiatric Trainee of the Year 2016 award has been presented to Dr Tully for having demonstrated through his clinical performance and practice that he has attained a level of achievement over and above that expected for his grade.

Dr Tully was presented with his prize by Dr Subodh Dave, the College’s Associate Dean for Trainee Support, at The Royal College of Psychiatrists’ London office on 8 November.

Commenting on Dr Tully’s win, RCPsych judges said: 'Dr John Tully has made significant contributions to research, education and quality improvement. He has investigated neurobiology, Schizophrenia and use of technology in Forensic Psychiatry. He has co-lead a project to reduce the use of seclusion as well as publishing his book for medical students and supporting a Psychiatry Summer School.'

Dr Tully said: 'I was delighted and very honoured to receive the RCPsych Higher Trainee of the Year award. This was based on my achievements throughout 2015, including leading a seclusion reduction project, publishing an examination question book for medical students and obtaining a Wellcome Research Fellowship.

'I have received tremendous support from SLaM, the IoPPN and the College in pursuing my various interests in my career and I am enormously grateful. I intend to continue to work hard to make use of the opportunities I have been given, to improve outcomes for our patient population through my clinical and research work.'
