Dr Carole Allan is new BPS President

Dr Carole Allan has been elected President of the British Psychological Society for 2011-12 in a ballot of members. Dr Allan is Professional Lead for Psychology in Glasgow, and has worked in various service posts in Adult Mental Health and Addictions, as well as in training at the University of Glasgow.

Dr Allan said: “I am delighted and honoured to be elected as President, but I’m very sorry that is has happened in such sad circumstances”.

The election took places following the sudden death earlier this summer of Professor Noel Sheehy, the Society’s President-Elect.

Dr Allan added: “I would like to thank my predecessor Dr Gerry Mulhern, for his work in the last year and for continuing as President while the Society held the elections over the summer”.

You can read more about Dr Carole Allan on our Trustees page. Her first President’s Column will appear in the September issue of The Psychologist.

You are invited to leave your tributes to Professor Noel Sheehy, who died in May when he was the Society's President Elect, elsewhere on this website.
