North Western

The North Western region is supported by a RCP regional office based in Liverpool.

This office provides valuable support for regional RCP activities as well as acting as a local point of contact.

The North Western regional advisers provide a local point of contact for RCP fellows and members in this region. They work in partnership with college tutors and regional colleagues to facilitate the two way exchange of information from the RCP to the region.

Regional advisers play an important role in offering support to local fellows and members, approving job descriptions, taking part in the scoring of clinical excellence awards and granting continuing professional development approval.
