Professor Sir Simon Wessely is on the Debrett's 500 list : Science and Medicine. I'd never heard of this list before. Here's what it says about it: https://www.debretts.com/debretts-500-2016/ "The Debrett’s 500 recognises Britain’s 500 most influential people. It has been carefully compiled by independent specialists in each of a number of sectors – from Advertising, Business and Fashion through to Politics and Science – who provide nominations for selection to Debrett’s. For almost 250 years, Debrett’s has been recognising people of influence and achievement in British society through its publications The Peerage and People of Today. As an extension to this heritage, the Debrett’s 500 was launched in 2014 and is published annually exclusively in association with The Sunday Times. Recognising those who inspire, influence and instigate change beyond expectation, it is a truly inspiring group of people." And here's the 2017 entry for Wessely: https://www.debretts.com/debretts-500-2017/science-medicine/ "Sir Simon Wessely, President, Royal College of Psychiatrists, 60 President of the Royal College of Psychiatrists since 2014, Sir Simon Wessely leads the body responsible for standards, training and education in the psychiatric profession. He is also head of King's College London's Department of Psychological Medicine and director of the King's Centre for Military Health Research. Wessely's research into Chronic Fatigue Syndrome caused controversy amongst sufferers and even led to threats on his life. His other key area of research has been in military health, including Gulf War Syndrome, and he is a trustee of Combat Stress and a consultant adviser to the British Army."
