Three consultants from Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust have been made honorary fellows of the Royal College of Psychiatrists in recognition of their work and contributions to psychiatry.
An Honorary Fellowship of the Royal College of Psychiatrists is presented to individuals who are eminent in psychiatry or allied sciences and have rendered distinguished service in the study, prevention or treatment of mental illness, or notable service to the College.
As a mark of distinction, consultants Dr Larteque Lawson, Dr Ezhil Anand and Dr Paul Beavan have all received a fellowship of the Royal College of Psychiatrists in the 2021 announcements.
Dr Ezhil Anand and Dr Larteque Lawson care for patients in the Trust’s Learning Disability services, whilst Dr Paul Beavan supports patients in the Care Trust’s Forensic Services. All three doctors provide care to some of the most vulnerable patients in Bradford.
Dr David Sims, Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust Medical Director, comments: “I am proud of the medical workforce in Bradford and to the contributions that our psychiatrists make to support individuals in Bradford. I am particularly proud of the work of these three doctors in Bradford and contributing to the work of psychiatrists in the UK. We are seeing unprecedented increases in demand for mental health services and our doctors continue to work to provide services as well as medical education, research and clinical leadership to a high standard recognised in these awards.”
