Appointment of RCP Deputy Treasurer

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Professor Chuka Nwokolo as deputy treasurer of the RCP. 

This role has been established with the approval of Council to support Professor Linda Luxon, the current treasurer, and to enable progression to her role after becoming fully familiar with the complexities of this office. Subject to agreement by the Annual General Meeting of Fellows, Professor Nwokolo will succeed Professor Luxon in 2018.

Professor Nwokolo has been a full time gastroenterology (GI) physician in Coventry since 1994. He holds an honorary Professorship in the Warwick University Medical School, and is the immediate past president of the Midlands Gastroenterological Society; during his term he worked closely with the RCP West Midlands regional office. 

Chuka was elected to RCP council from 2009 - 2013, and in 2011 was appointed to the Finance and General Purposes Board (now the Finance and Resources Board, of which he is still a member). He also served a 5 year term as the treasurer of the British Society of Gastroenterology (BSG) from 2003-2008.
