David Tuthill, RCPCH Officer for Wales, explains more:
Your College plays an important part to support members in their professional training as well as advocate for children's health and wellbeing. We work closely with the Welsh government, responding to relevant policies and draft documents, so that, despite economic and social difficulties, we can help deliver the best outcomes for children in Wales.
These are vital roles for Welsh paediatricians to fulfil and assist children in attaining their best health. Since becoming Officer for Wales I've been involved in a wide variety of reports and lobbying aspects, taking important issues directly to the minister for health in Wales and Welsh government.
I'd be delighted if you would consider joining me in trying to maintain the highest professional standards in Wales, a strong voice for Welsh paediatricians in the College and good links with Welsh government.
In this round we're recruiting a Regional Lead and Deputy Regional Lead (both in South Wales) and a regional representative to the Wales Executive Committee (south east Wales).
