RCPCH election

Voting is open until 9 December for our next President and Registrar! If you're eligible to vote, look out for your electronic and postal ballot. And, get to know the candidates in their statements, video and new podcasts.
The President serves as the leader of the membership and is the key public face of RCPCH, nationally and internationally. Find out what each candidate has to offer through their short video statement and manifestos!
We asked each of the President candidates six questions as suggested by our members, from poverty to future challenges faced by children and young people, from supporting BAME members to addressing burnout among consultants.
The Registrar is a Senior Officer role and a Trustee, working closely with the President and others to oversee areas of the College’s governance and ethical framework and its relations with other bodies. See what each candidate has to offer!

Over the last few weeks, our RCPCH &Us team has been speaking with children and young people to find out the five questions they’d like candidates - for both President and Registrar - to answer to help members cast their vote.

Available on Apple, Spotify, YouTube, and wherever else you listen to your podcasts. If you would like to view text captions, enable Closed Captions (CC) on YouTube.

We have a range of other opportunities for members at all career stages.

Current vacancies include three Officers posts - Scotland, Digital Health & Technology and Research - plus posts for regional representatives on committees and for trainees.
