The CPSC (civil and public services committee) considers and acts on matters affecting medical staff employed by government departments.
As a committee that has a wide and varied membership, our efforts continue to focus on establishing who our membership is and what types of roles fall within our remit.
Following a survey of our membership, there are clear inconsistencies with how members have chosen to categorise themselves within the civil service membership grades, which makes engagement more challenging.
We are looking to change the membership categorisation of our civil service grades to more relevant and identifiable titles and encourage members to update their employment details. Only then can we better engage with our members and ensure the committee reflects this.
Chair: Dr Eliott King
The committee is composed of:
Three members elected by doctors employed by Government departments, their agencies or contractors in the UK including those working for the Medical Research Council and in the offices of Regional Directors of Public Health.
