Oxford and Thames Valley

The Oxford and Thames Valley region is supported by a dedicated RCP regional office.

Regional advisers

The Oxford and Thames Valley 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 also approve job descriptions, take part in the scoring of clinical excellence awards and grant continuing professional development approval.

School of medicine

Heads of schools have now been appointed in most deaneries. The appointment process was deanery-based, with the posts being advertised. In most cases the RCP and the deanery cooperated, which variously included the RCP commenting on the job description, advertising the role to fellows, and being represented on the appointment panel. In the majority of cases the person appointed has previously served as a regional adviser.

Dr George MacFaul is the head of school of medicine for Health Education Thames Valley.
