We work closely with RCPCH members in Ireland and the Ireland Committee to advocate for child health to ensure it’s high on the political agenda, as well as providing localised training and events for our members.
Dr Ray Nethercott is the Officer for Ireland, representing members in both Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland at RCPCH Council. The Regional Lead for Northern Ireland is Dr Mugilan Anandarajan, and the position of Regional Lead for the Republic of Ireland is currently vacant.
This committee allows paediatricians to act as advocates for the College in Northern Ireland in relation to media, public affairs and health policy work. It offers input and advice on member focused activity such as courses and events.
We have collated some useful links for members in Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland. Take a look!
