​RCCs (regional consultants committees) are the representative bodies for all consultants in their region. RCC members are elected to the consultants committee and provide an important link between the national body and the BMA locally.

The RCCs also provide a source of regional expert advice for directors of public health, the deaneries, regional advisory committees on clinical excellence awards, strategic health authorities and local authorities.

 

Overview

There are 13 RCCs in England that involve and engage consultant members on a local basis. 

The RCCs meet four times a year to discuss the latest issues affecting consultant doctors in their respective regions. These meetings are open to all consultants in their regional areas. Both BMA members and non-members are welcome.

Come along and have your say on the things that matter to you and your work.
