New Consultants Committee: vacancies for representatives from North Wales and the North Western region

The Royal College of Physicians' (RCP's) New Consultants Committee (NCC) is looking for consultants to fill posts in the North Wales and North Western regions from 1 August 2017 to 31 July 2020.

The NCC 

The NCC aims to meet the interests and needs of doctors at an important stage in their career while also giving 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 RCP Council and specialty committees, and it inputs to important issues and projects, such as safe medical staffing and the Future Hospital Programme. It meets four times a year.


To be eligible for the position you must have been appointed to your first consultant’s post within the last 5 years and be a subscribing member of the RCP. If you are not currently a member, information on joining is available

How to apply

If you are interested in representing these regions, please contact NCC committee manager Geraldine Welham on email at by 5pm on Wednesday 26 July 2017. Please note that if more than one eligible candidate comes forward, a ballot will be held in your region.

The NCC’s terms of reference are attached. Please ensure that you are able to take the requisite time away from your trust – see the attached guidance on time off for RCP duties – and note the information on the RCP’s principles and process for nominations.

The Royal College of Physicians welcomes and actively seeks to recruit people to its activities regardless of race, religion, ethnic origin, disability, age, gender and sexual orientation.
