Northern Irish Board

Northern Irish Board

The Northern Irish Board acts as the link between Fellows and Members in the Province and the College. It also represents anaesthetists within the wider Northern Ireland health and social care structure, including liaising with fellow Royal Colleges and senior decision makers.

Dr Darrell Lowry

"We meet twice a year and provides and important link between the College and RCoA fellows and members based in Northern Ireland. The Board also run an annual meeting with College Tutors and regional training leads which provides an opportunity to share work more widely and to gain valuable input from the wider anaesthetic, ICM and pain medicine communities in Wales to inform our work."

The Board consists of elected Consultant, SAS and trainee representatives, along with regional advisors, a Lay Committee representative and various co-opted members. It meets twice a year, in the spring and autumn, and is also attended by the President or a deputising Vice President, and a member of the College’s senior management team. At some Board meetings we have guest speakers from relevant healthcare work streams.
