A new search function, receipts at the click of a button and more tools on the horizon – find out all about our latest website improvements

Over the next few months, we’ll be unveiling a range of new, exciting tools and functions on the RCPath website. These developments aim to make your experience of the website smoother, helping you to more easily find what you are looking for and enhancing your interactions with the College.

The updates to the RCPath website have been developed with the support of our members. Changes have been influenced by member feedback from a satisfaction survey we carried out in 2018, as well as input from our fantastic digital user group.

We have launched the first round of improvements today. Read on to find out more.

New and improved search function

The RCPath website now has a brand new search function to make finding pages and resources much easier. Our new search has an ‘autocomplete’ function and will correct typos too – just like Google. It’s also more sensitive, so should help you more easily find the specific item you’re looking for.

View transactions and request receipts 

We’ve also created a new transaction history page, where you can request receipts for any transactions you’ve made with the College, including those you’ve made over the phone.

To access this page, simply log in and navigate to ‘Transaction history’ under ‘MyRCPath’. By clicking ‘Request receipt’ against a transaction, you’ll trigger an email that will send a PDF receipt to your registered email address.

We know our members often need receipts for tax purposes, so hope this update will make your lives that little bit easier.

What’s coming next?

Upcoming developments include:

  • an exciting new tool that will allow our members to respond to consultations on guidelines, curricula and more via the website
  • improvements to our exam and trainee registration processes, so trainees can save and return to their forms at a later date
  • a new resource library to help you track down key documents and filter them by specialty and type
  • expanded volunteering pages to make it even easier to get involved with the College.

Keep up to date

We’ll post again when our next round of changes are launched, so keep an eye on our Twitter and Facebook for updates. You can also follow us on Instagram @royalcollegeofpathologists.
