East Midlands PERCs

In recent years, the College has recognised the importance of explaining its work and the work of pathologists to the wider public, through the establishment of the Public Engagement programme.

The programme has been a great success and to maintain momentum we have recruited Public Engagement Regional Coordinators (PERCs), to work with the College’s Director of Publishing and Engagement and Public Engagement Manager, as well as their regional Council in delivering the programme successfully across the UK. The PERC role is a voluntary position and helps provide support to those organising events in their region.

Public Engagement Regional Coordinators (East Midlands)

  • Dr Rachel Rummery

    I strongly believe that the work of pathologists of all disciplines needs to be promoted to the public and other medical professionals, to allow for better understanding and appreciation of our work. I am currently a junior trainee in histopathology, having recently returned after a long career break. Whilst on my career break, I had to explain my job to many of my friends so I am well aware of the public perception of pathology. I enjoy explaining how the work of a histopathologist, and virtually all the work of the other pathology disciplines, benefits the living - this is almost always a surprise to people and they are usually very interested.
