New Consultants Committee: vacancies for representatives

We are looking for new consultants to fill three RCP New Consultants Committee (NCC) posts from 1 March 2020 to 28 February 2023.

Vacancies for representatives from the following regions will soon be available on the NCC:

  • Mersey
  • Peninsula
  • West Midlands

The Role

The NCC aims to meet the interests and needs of doctors at an important stage in their career. It also gives new consultants an opportunity to feed into the development of RCP policy and to contribute to its work.

The committee is represented on a wide range of groups in the RCP, including Council and specialty committees, and it inputs to important issues and projects, such as NHS sustainability and the recent report into medical professionalism. The NCC meets four times a year in London, though from 2020 some meetings may be held at RCP North in Liverpool.


To be eligible you must have been appointed to your first substantial consultant post within the last 5 years (December 2014) and be an RCP London subscribing member. If you are not a member, joining information is available.

How to apply

If you are interested in representing these regions, please email an expression of interest to NCC committee manager Rhys Owens at by 5pm on Monday 13 January 2020.

The NCC’s terms of reference are attached. Please ensure that you are able to take the requisite time away from your trust, and note the information on the RCP’s principles and process for nominations. If more than one eligible candidate comes forward, a ballot will be held in your region. The positons are also available as a job share. Those seeking a job share arrangement must apply together and clearly state this in their expression of interest.
