There are a number of opportunities to help shape the work of the College.

Terms of office are ending in November for all three Vice Presidents, the Chair of Scotland Regional Council and eight elected roles on College Council.

Professor Jo Martin, President of the College said: 

'These roles offer an excellent opportunity for you to shape the work of your College. We would particularly welcome nominations from eligible Fellows from across our specialties and from all backgrounds since representation at senior levels in the College does not reflect the wealth of diversity of our members. Do consider standing!'
