All members are welcome to join Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 26 March at 12:00 (noon) in Birmingham or via a livestream. It will receive reports on College activities over the last year and hand over the Presidency.
Whether you can help the College champion child protection, run invited reviews or represent the voice of trainees, we have some wonderful volunteering opportunities. Plus two new International Officer roles!
Our new report presents findings from services responsible for conducting child protection medical assessments. It shows positive national results in many areas, but a need to better protect our safeguarding workforce.
Dr Emily Parker is one of our new Clinical Fellows with the Clean Air Fund Partnership, and in her first blog, she describes how doctors are taking a more critical look at the impact of air pollution on children's health.
We hope you can join us on 25-27 March for our major event. With the input of more than 35 specialty groups, inspiring speakers and practical workshops, you can update your knowledge on what matters to you.
We champion safeguarding for children and young people. We're seeking an Assistant Officer and a Looked After Children representative, plus a Chair and Deputy Chair for our Scotland child protection sub-committee.
The College Specialty Advisory Committees supervise the development and delivery of sub-specialty training. Applications open for an Assessment Advisor in Neonatal Medicine and a SPIN Lead for Paediatric Audiovestibular Medicine.
For the first time, we are recruiting for these senior posts to represent our ever expanding global membership and report into RCPCH Council. One role will cover Asia, and the other Africa, Middle East, Americas, Europe and Australasia.
Our Invited Reviews Programme provides a clinically-led expert and independent peer review service to healthcare organisations. Its Programme Board is seeking a Clinical Lead and a Deputy Clinical Lead.
The SEC is recruiting a West of Scotland rep to provide leadership for College activities such as policy development, engaging with external stakeholders and members. Our SAS Committee and LTFT Training Advisors Network also have vacancies for Scotland reps.
Trainees play a vital role in the College as volunteers. Our current vacancies are on the Trainees Committee (North West and Peninsula regional reps), Training and Quality Board and Membership Committee.
This is a senior Officer role, which works closely with the RCPCH President, Treasurer, four Vice-Presidents and staff to further the mission of the College. Also sitting on our Board of Trustees, the Registrar oversees areas of our governance and ethical framework and our membership needs.
We invite members with commitment and enthusiasm to apply.
