The Faculty of Pre-Hospital Care

Faculty Advisory Board Elections



Opportunities to Become Involved!

Eight exciting opportunities have arisen to become an elected Member of the Faculty Advisory Board. Elected Members have the opportunity to drive forward the pre-hospital care agenda and have a meaningful input into shaping the strategy of the Faculty of Pre-Hospital Care. 

The Role of the Faculty Advisory Board

The Faculty aims to promote high standards of pre-hospital care through education, research and teaching. The Faculty Advisory Board plays an important role in fulfilling this aim. It does this by shaping the strategic priorities of the Faculty, both nationally and internationally, through the provision of expert opinion and advice. The multi-professional ethos of the Faculty is fully represented within the Advisory Board which has representation from across the full pre-hospital care spectrum.

The Role of the Faculty Executive Committee

The Faculty Executive Committee sets strategy and has overall management responsibility for the Faculty on a day to day basis. 

The representative with the highest number of votes in each category will also have a seat on the Faculty’s Executive Committee. In the event that there are insufficient nominations to go to ballot, the Fellow / Member with the longest tenure as a Fellow / Member will be chosen as the Executive representative. 


To be eligible an individual must:

  • Be a Fellow / Member of the Faculty in good standing
  • Have a proposer and a seconder who are Faculty Fellows / Members in good standing
  • Be in good standing with the appropriate regulator (unless you are working at Membership Levels 1 to 4)

Time Commitment

Elected Members will be expected to attend meetings of the Faculty Advisory Board which take place four times a year (twice in Edinburgh and twice in Birmingham) where they will represent their constituent profession (this can be by teleconference or in person). Beyond attendance at meetings there will be ad-hoc opportunities to promote the work of the Faculty and become involved in a range of pre-hospital care activities.

The Faculty Executive representative is additionally expected to attend meetings of the Faculty Executive, which take place six times a year (five via teleconference and one in person at the Annual Conference), where they will report on their constituent profession. Beyond attendance at meetings, by mutual agreement, there will be additional opportunities to promote the work of the Faculty and become involved in a range of pre-hospital care activities.
