Regional Advocacy Groups

RCSEd represents its membership across the whole of the UK and we are committed to hearing a range of opinions from all nations.  

We have established two regional advocacy groups in Northern Ireland and Wales and plan to set up groups in Scotland and England.

These informal groups consist of members and fellows of the College who are interested in keeping up to date with health policy and would like to contribute to the College’s policy work. They offer the opportunity to discuss nation specific issues, devolved policy matters and local networking.

Northern Ireland Advocacy Group

The Group represents affiliates, Members and Fellows working in the five Health and Social Care Trusts in Northern Ireland. It serves to: 

  • provide a point of contact for Members and Fellows on College matters and all aspects of surgical care
  • communicate information from Northern Ireland to the College, and disseminate information from the College to its Members and Fellows
  • actively work to improve Surgical services across Northern Ireland by shaping and developing the way the College engages with Heath Trusts, the Health and Social Care Board, other HSC Agencies, MLAs, MPs and other key health and social care stakeholders
  • identify regional issues that the College should concentrate on and mobilise our resources accordingly
  • vastly improve how RCSEd serve our local memberships and respond better to regional demands

Wales Advocacy Group

The board represents affiliates, members and Fellows working in the seven Local Health Boards in Wales. It serves to:

  • provide a point of contact for Members and Fellows on College matters and all aspects of surgical care
  • communicate information from Wales to the College, and disseminate information from the College to its Members and Fellows
  • actively work to improve Surgical services across Wales by shaping and developing the way the College engages with the Welsh Government, NHS Wales, Health Boards, Trusts and other bodies such as Healthcare Education and Improvement Wales, and AMs and other key health and social care stakeholders
  • identify regional issues that the College should concentrate on and mobilise our resources accordingly
  • vastly improve how RCSEd serve our local memberships and respond better to regional demands

If you are interested in becoming a member or to find out further information about the Advocacy group and the work we are doing, please contact Siobhan Parry, Engagement Officer at s.parry@rcsed.ac.uk
