The FSRH Council is the professional membership body of the FSRH, responsible for implementing the Faculty’s mission and contributing to its clinical expertise and to meeting long-term goals and aims. The Council is comprised of elected FSRH members and nominated external representatives and plays a key role in shaping and overseeing the work of the Faculty, bringing the member voice and experience into our work.

This year we have a number of vacancies and are looking to recruit Diplomates and Member/Fellows. We have extended our deadline for the following selected areas: 

  • East of England
  • Midlands
  • NE & Yorkshire
  • South East
  • South West
  • Scotland
  • Wales

Appointment to the Council of the FSRH is now on a region and nation basis; meaning that each vacant position will represent a region.  

Those standing for election should have a work address within the region or nation for which they are standing.
