Applications Open for Regional Boards

We have an exciting opportunity for members to get involved in College work!

We are now recruiting members to join our new Regional Boards that are being set up in the South Central, South East Coast, East of England, and Yorkshire and Humber regions.

What will being part of a Regional Board involve?

Members of each Regional Board will meet on a quarterly basis to raise awareness of important issues facing their Emergency Departments as well as their experiences more generally, and to share learning and advice that can be disseminated back to those working in the region. These Boards will also serve as a way of supporting the Regional Chair in campaigning for better standards of healthcare for both patients and Emergency Medicine staff.

Regional activity is becoming increasingly important as all parts of England will soon be covered by Integrated Care Systems, which will bring more decision-making to a local level.

Who can get involved?

We are looking for members of all categories who work in any of these parts of England to represent their region and support the work of the College. We want to ensure that these Regional Boards are truly representative of the different staff groups that make up the Emergency Medicine workforce and of the different Trusts in each region.

What experience is needed?

No previous College experience is necessary - just an interest in representing your region and a passion for Emergency Medicine. We are particularly keen to engage with those who are new to the College.

How can I get involved?

To apply, please fill out an Expression of Interest form, explaining why you would like to get involved in a Regional Board and send it to the email below.

You can find the Terms of Reference document here which will provide more information on the purpose and scope of the Board.

The Expression of Interest form can be found here.
