Why become an RCPCH Ambassador?

It’s easy to become disillusioned with yet another reorganisation of health services. Getting involved in a positive way to help ensure children are not forgotten as plans evolve - now that's a real antidote to apathy!

Dr Steve Jones, RCPCH Ambassador for Bath, North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire ICS

The College is increasingly concerned about the lack of priority given to child health and the child health workforce in national policy and how this impacts on services locally.

With the move to statutory Integrated Care Systems, there are new opportunities to work together and advocate for the needs of children and young people. 

As an RCPCH Ambassador you will have the opportunity to inform the College’s conversations with Government and national policy development. You will have access to resources to support you to advocate locally within your service, Trust or the wider system.

How to apply

We are recruiting for Ambassadors across England, and there is no limit to the number in each ICS/area. 

You must be a working paediatrician with MRCPCH based in England, and meet other eligibility criteria described in the role description. So if you're passionate about creating positive impact for children and young people - and the workforce that serves them - in your local area and across the country, we want to hear from you!

We have currently paused applications for a short time.
