Dear Mr Corsius,

Thank you for your email.

Professor Sir Simon Wessely has been elected President of the Royal Society of Medicine through a democratic process of election which takes place every three years.

Earlier this year the Fellows of the Royal Society of Medicine were invited to nominate candidates to stand for election as President. There were five candidates.

The successful candidate was then elected by vote by our Council of Trustees.

I trust this explains the process by which Sir Simon has been elected to take over as President of the Royal Society of Medicine in July 2017.

Yours sincerely
Janice Liverseidge

Dear madam,

Simon Wessely has been appointed president of the RSM. It isĀ  almost impossible to believe this is really happening. Does RSM really want to be associated with a man who is part of and defender of a research that is known for its many severe scientific flaws and misleading conclusions?
The credibility of RSM is at stake here.

Yours sincerely
Lou Corsius, Msc
