Vacancies on the New Consultants Committee for North West London and Northern Ireland representatives

Vacancies for representatives from the following regions are soon to arise on the RCP’s New Consultants Committee (NCC):

North West London

Northern Ireland

We are now looking for new consultants to fill these posts from 1 August 2021 to 31 July 2024.

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 the college's response to COVID-19 and the New Consultants National Conference. The NCC meets three times a year, usually at RCP London or RCP at the Spine in Liverpool, but for the foreseeable future all meetings are conducted virtually.

Eligibility

To be eligible you must have been appointed to your first consultant’s post within the last 5 years (April 2016) and be an RCP London subscribing member working in the region you seek to represent. If you are not a member, information on joining can be found here.

How to apply

If you are interested in representing these regions, please contact NCC committee manager Rhys Owens (rhys.owens@rcp.ac.uk) by 5pm on Friday 21 May 2021. 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, 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.
