Professor Priscilla Harries

Professor Harries was chosen to represent the 33,000 members of the Royal College of Occupational Therapists profession at a Buckingham Palace Garden Party last week. She was accompanied by one of the Royal College’s Officers, Dr Gill Ward. Priscilla Harries is the outgoing Vice Chair of Council, Royal College of Occupational Therapists and Chair of the Royal College of Occupational Therapists’ R&D Committee. 

Her Majesty The Queen

Her terms in these roles finish this summer, but the timing is just right as she will be rapidly ramping up her contribution to Research England as REF 2021 approaches; she was successfully nominated for UoA 3 Sub-Panel (Allied Health Professions, Dentistry, Nursing and Pharmacy) by the Royal College and Council of Deans for Health for both the Criteria setting and Review stages.

Professor Priscilla Harries shared:  “It was such an honour. We had her Royal Highness as well as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge meeting guests. We spent time with colleagues from the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy. As a keen tennis player I was also pleased to find the Royal tennis court. “
