The Lund Lecture is an address given in honour of one of our past Presidents Sir Thomas Lund CBE. Keynote speeches have been given by senior members of the professions, including Lord Hailsham, Mr. Patrick Steptoe, Professor Alan Usher, The late Lord Chief Justice, Lord Taylor, Mr. Stephen Jessel, Lord Mackay, Mr Andrew Rennison and the most recent being Professor Emeritus John Grieve CBE.

Bob is a consultant forensic psychiatrist and forensic physician with over thirty years’ experience in both the NHS and Independent sectors. He has worked extensively in high secure psychiatric hospitals, including both Broadmoor and Rampton, where he treated the perpetrators of some of the most notorious murders in modern times. Bob is a BAFS Executive Council member and has served on the Parole Board for England and Wales. He currently serves on the Mental Health Tribunal Service, as a NHS Specialist Clinical Investigator for Deaths in Custody, and is the Medical Director of East Anglian Forensic Services Ltd, an expert medico-legal consultancy, specialising in complex case investigation. He has just been appointed to the CQC as an expert advisor and is one of a tiny number of forensic psychiatrists empaneled by the National Crime Agency to assist the Police in complex investigations. Bob was elected Visiting Professor of Forensic Psychiatry, at the University of Lincoln, in 2004; and since then has been awarded a Travelling Fellowship to lecture in New Zealand, and in 2011 was appointed external PhD Examiner to the University of East Anglia. His contribution to the Lund Lecture series is an exposition on the science, law and psychopathology of missing body murder investigation. Always engaging, often controversial- and never boring- Professor Peckitt’s lecture promises to be thought provoking and a catalyst for debate. Venue The Medical Society of Londo
