Currently running surveys:

1. Review of gross negligence manslaughter and culpable homicide

Deadline: 27 July 2018
The GMC has commissioned Dame Clare Marx to lead a review of the issues surrounding gross negligence manslaughter (GNM) and culpable homicide (CH) in Scottish law
involving doctors. This follows recent high profile cases. The review is not seeking to change the law relating to GNM/CH or to interfere with the autonomy of the prosecuting authorities or the courts in these matters. Rather, within the parameters of the existing law and medical regulation, it is seeking to understand how the law and regulatory processes operate in this area and identify opportunities for improvement in procedures and processes which will support just decision making and the application of the law.

Deadline: 9 September 2018

1. RCEM International Activity

The International Committee was established with the objective of coordinating all international activities on behalf of the College, with one of their key responsibilities being to help advance the international development of Emergency Medicine. To read more about the International Committee, click here. 
The Committee would like to invite those members of the College that work outside of the UK (either full time or for short periods away from UK work) to complete a short survey. The purpose of this survey is to gather the most current and accurate information on active overseas RCEM members.

This information will be used to help add to the growing network of Members of the Royal College of Emergency Medicine, that can be found all over the world. The results of this survey will be used to update our  ‘College members working overseas’ page. This page includes a map so that members can get a good overview of where in the world RCEM members are active and the types of work undertaken in each country. The Committee would greatly appreciate your input in completing this survey and would also be grateful if could direct other RCEM members working overseas, to this page.
