Meet the International Committee

The International Committee represents the philanthropic arm of the RCR that seeks to provide a consolidated approach to a wide spectrum of RCR overseas activities.

Dr Andy Beale, Chair

Treasurer – Medical Director, Membership and Business, and Chair of the RCR International Committee

"I am fortunate that I have managed to travel widely throughout the world and visited many both wealthy and less wealthy countries. I have always wished that I, and in turn the RCR, could be more philanthropic in our approach and although we may not always have the finance to support other countries we certainly are fortunate in that we often have a lot of expertise and the willingness to share it. I hope as chair of the committee I can encourage Fellows and members to extend their knowledge and expertise to others. I am sure that we will hugely benefit in return."
