Medical Council Committees

This Medical Council commenced its term in June 2013 with the aim of building on the work of the previous Council, in promoting patient safety, while engaging proactively with the profession.


The Council is noteworthy from a governance perspective due to the range of activities requiring oversight. To support us in delivering our role and remit, we have put in place a new governance structure, with eight committees focusing on particular strands of the Council’s work.


There are also several Sub-Committees and Working Groups which report to these Committees.

These can be found within the relevant Committee page.
