Information on the RCP in Wales. 

RCP Wales national office

Fellows and members in Wales are supported by the RCP vice president for Wales, RCP regional and training advisers, and a team of RCP staff. We work in partnership with college tutors and other colleagues to ensure strong links between Wales and the RCP in London. The team plays an important role in offering support to fellows and members, approving job descriptions, taking part in the scoring of clinical excellence awards and granting continuing professional development approval.

Further information is available regarding RCP Wales policy and public affairs work along with education and training events.

RCP vice president for Wales

Dr Gareth Llewelyn, a consultant neurologist, is the RCP vice president for Wales. He leads the RCP’s policy and public affairs work in Wales, engaging on behalf of RCP fellows and members with the Welsh government, the National Assembly for Wales, and NHS Wales.

Following his election, Dr Llewelyn said:

Cuts in funding have amplified work pressures across the whole of the NHS and healthcare cannot be delivered without investment in the workforce. Clinicians need to lead change, and from primary care, secondary care and public health we can work together to look at new patient-centred models of integrated care in urban and rural areas.

We also need a review of recruitment and workload across all specialties, and a national workforce plan; Wales needs to promote itself as an attractive place to study medicine, achieve high-class training and develop as clinical leaders.
