We welcome our new Global Officer and Trustee

Dr Susan Broster has been appointed as our Global Officer, working closely with the staff team and many clinical volunteers to deliver our global child health programmes. Sue replaces Dr Bhanu Williams, who now joins our Board of Trustees.

Dr Sue Broster, pictured right, is a Consultant in Neonatal Intensive Care, with the Acute Neonatal Transfer Service for the East of England and Deputy Medical Director at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. She has a longstanding commitment to both paediatrics and global health working  in countries as diverse as Guyana, Botswana and most recently with the RCPCH neonatal programme in Myanmar.

She is also a committee member with the charitable organisation Cambridge Global Health Partnerships. 

Sue writes of her new role:

I am committed to the RCPCH vision of a healthier future for children and young people working as part of the RCPCH Global Operations Team developing and strengthening partnerships with our paediatric counterparts across the world.

Dr Bhanu Williams, pictured right, joined the Board of Trustees on 1 April 2020 taking over from Dr John Jenkins who stood down on 31 March.

Dame Mary Marsh, Chair of the Board of Trustees, writes of Bhanu's appointment:

We are very pleased to confirm that Dr Bhanu Williams has been appointed as a member Trustee. Bhanu has been actively involved with the College in her role as Global Officer since July 2015. More recently Bhanu has also been the joint Chair of the Equality and Diversity Panel whose report has been reviewed by Trustees with all the well considered recommendations fully accepted by the Board and Council.

Bhanu is currently a Consultant in Acute Paediatrics at the London NorthWest Healthcare NHS Trust, Director of Medical Education, Deputy Postgraduate Dean at HEE. She clearly brings a welcome range of important and diverse perspectives and experience to the Board of Trustees. We very much look forward to working with her in her new role.
