Call for Nominations – Vice President x4

Fellows are invited to submit nominations for four Vice President roles. Vice Presidents and Officers of Council can only serve two consecutive three year terms; therefore there are a number of roles coming up for renewal.

Dr Chris Moulton, Vice President, demits office at the Annual General Meeting this autumn having served two consecutive terms as Vice President. The College thanks Chris for his excellent work and support.

A number of other Officer roles are also up for renewal. Vice President Mrs Lisa Munro-Davies’ office comes up for renewal, as does Dr Ian (Higgi) Higginson’s office as Registrar. A new role, Vice President – Policy has been created to deal with the substantial policy work associated with the NHS in England (to complement the Vice President roles in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales).

The process for selecting candidates for these roles is that nominations are invited from Fellows using the nomination form. The selection is made by a secret ballot of the Trustees in the Council of the College.

Vacancies on Council

We therefore invite nominations from Fellows only for the below roles. All of these roles include being part of the College Executive Committee as well as Council acting as a Trustee.

Vice President – two places to fill

These roles have a shared responsibility to lead the College Professional Standards work, this includes providing leadership to a range of Committees and Working Groups focused on the delivery of effective emergency medicine and includes: the Informatics Committee, Sustainable Working Practices Committee, Service Design & Delivery Committee and the Paediatric Emergency Medicine Committee.

Vice President (Policy) – new role

This role will be to support the President and College leadership team on health policy matters relating to the NHS in England. A key focus will be on the Clinical Review of Standards, but there are a wide range of other health policy developments associated with the Long Term Plan that are impacting emergency medicine hence the Council’s desire to create this influential new role. The role also involves close working with the CEO and Policy Team on policy matters. This role will ideally be suited to a Fellow with an excellent working knowledge of health policy matters affecting emergency medicine in England.

Registrar – to be renamed Vice President (Membership)

The Vice President (Membership) will provide additional leadership to the College’s drive to increase the membership value and membership experience for our Members and Fellows.
