Vacancy for an RCP fellow to chair the Joint Specialty Committee for Nuclear Medicine (JSC NM)

A senior consultant in nuclear medicine, who is also a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians (RCP), is sought to join the JSC NM as chair.

The JSC NM is established jointly between the RCP and the British Nuclear Medicine Society (BNMS) and is made up of nominees from both parent bodies. It also includes wider representation from Public Health England (PHE), Radionuclide Radiology and the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM). Officers and senior staff of the RCP and BNMS attend in an ex-officio capacity.   

The role of the committee is to advise its parent bodies, or other organisations on their behalf, on matters of mutual interest such as workforce and training, setting joint guidelines and policy statements, specifications for clinical governance, service review and any other specific matters of particular relevance such as the provision and procurement of PET-CT services.

The tenure of the chair will be for at least two years, but no more than four.

As well as chairing three meetings of the JSC NM per year, the chair will also be required to sit on the Intercollegiate Standing Committee for Nuclear Medicine (which runs consecutively with the JSC NM at the same location). Additionally membership of the Medical Specialties Board (MSB) is required (also three meetings per annum).

How to apply

If you would like to apply for the role, please forward a current CV and a short (one side of A4) statement of your interest in this opportunity, highlighting how you would be able to contribute. This should be sent to RCP registrar Professor Donal O’Donoghue c/o by close of business on 31 March 2020. 

The RCP Nominations Committee will then consider all applications and will make a final decision. The committee's Terms of Reference and the RCP's nominations procedure can be found at the bottom of this page.

Please ensure you have agreement from your trust for the requisite time off.
