Virtual regional visits

Regional visits provide an important opportunity for the RCR Officers to meet colleagues across the UK and around the world.

Our virtual visits are an opportunity for the RCR to come to you and provide a forum for discussion about the work of the College and – more importantly – about the challenges you are facing in clinical practice and any areas of concern for your specialty.

The RCR's Clinical Oncology Officers have been undertaking a series of regional visits across the UK since 2013, covering both the clinical senate areas in England and the devolved nations in the UK. They have been hugely successful and allow you the opportunity to find out more about the work of the RCR and to discuss any issues that you might be facing on the front line. With COVID-19 ever present and preventing face-to-face opportunities to come together, the RCR has now decided to introduce joint virtual regional visits.

These visits form part of the RCR’s strategy for wider engagement with its Fellows and members.

The visits will run until July 2021. Each UK region will have a visit and there will also be global visits for our colleagues outisde the UK.

Attendance is open to Fellows and members from both Faculties within each region. Meetings will be recorded.

"It was wonderful to hear about the work done by the College. Sometimes one feels quite dissociated but such events help to cultivate the integration with the College and its activities."
