UK regional network

The RCP regional network is designed to provide practical support and service in person to our members where they work. 

There are 19 areas within the UK, each with training and service regional advisers, as well as specialty advisers offering support to local fellows and members. Ten regions have a dedicated RCP regional office, providing a local point of contact for our members, supporting the work of the regional advisers and offering valuable support for RCP activities within the region.

The UK regional network provides members with on the spot access to: 

Regional advisers

Regional advisers are the link between local hospital physicians and the RCP and are vital in carrying out specific duties that maintain the quality of local services.
