Our UK Regions

In this section, you will find information on work carried out by the College and our members throughout the United Kingdom. Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales are governed by their own representative councils and, within England, there are a smaller subset of English regions, each headed up by a regional advisor. 

Our regional councils

Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales

The College has councils of local clinicians and scientists directing activity in all parts of the UK. The chairs of the Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales Regional Councils represent their respective areas on the College's Council and Trustee Board.

The role of the regional council members is to provide professional leadership in their regions and contribute nationally to the maintenance and development of pathology services and the quality of care that patients receive. 


Members in England are represented by 4 regionally elected College Council representatives. The role of the four elected members is to attend College Council meetings and to represent the members interests within their geographical area.
