The regional office supports the work of the Eastern regional advisers and provides a local point of contact for RCP fellows and members in this region. Together they work in partnership with College tutors and regional colleagues to facilitate the two way exchange of information from the RCP to the region. The regional team provide local CPD opportunities with the provision of workshops, conferences and access to other training courses.
Regional advisers play an important role in offering support to local fellows and members, approving job descriptions, taking part in the scoring of clinical excellence awards and granting continuing professional development approval.
