The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow plays a key role in setting quality standards in healthcare practice and patient care. The College also provides advice on government policy, acts as a leading voice on healthcare issues and provides information to the public.


Policy Network

The College offers our membership an opportunity to play a part in shaping the institution’s policies as part of our Policy Network.

The Network is open to our wider membership, and will allow members an opportunity to contribute to the preparation of the College’s response to consultation exercises and inquires, as well as taking a proactive role in developing the College’s position on a range of key issues for our membership.

Along with opportunities to contribute to consultations, members of the Policy Network will:

  • Receive an invitation to attend complimentary, CPD-accredited, College policy events
  • Be eligible to receive personal CPD-accredited media and social media training
  • Receive quarterly email updates on the College’s public affairs and PR activity, including our participation in consultation responses and opportunities to contribute

Members who wish to join the Network are required to compete an application form, which should be returned by email to policynetwork@rcpsg.ac.uk
