Intercollegiate Committee on Haematology
The Intercollegiate Committee on Haematology (ICCH) is established between The Royal College of Pathologists and The Royal College of Physicians (London) and provides essential links between both Colleges and the specialist societies – the British Society for Haematology, Association of Clinical Pathologists and other colleges through the Joint Collegiate Council on Oncology.
Administration of the ICH is divided between the Royal College of Physicians (London) and the Royal College of Pathologists on a three-yearly basis. The committee reports to the councils of both colleges. The Royal College of Pathologists resumed responsibility for administering the committee in January 2021.
