The Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh is a professional membership organisation, founded in 1681 under a Royal Charter. We support a diverse range of doctors across the world with over 13,000 Fellows and Members.

We are now seeking to appoint up to 6 new members of the Lay Advisory Committee from across the UK. The Lay Advisory Committee is a high-level group of non-medically qualified individuals who advise and guide the work of the College.

The Committee meets routinely 3 times a year in the evening with sub groups meeting as the workload dictates. The Committee also runs one full day planning meeting. Video linking and telephone conferencing are available for those unable to travel to Edinburgh.

The term of office is 3 years. Membership of the committee does not attract payment but reasonable travel expenses will be reimbursed.

Informal enquiries can be made to Lindsay Paterson, Policy Manager l.paterson@rcpe.ac.uk  


We value and promote diversity. We appoint on merit and are committed to opportunity for all.
