At the heart of the Running Horse Group is the philosophy that improving child health is a job for all health care professionals:
Inspiring the Child Health workforce to deliver high quality care that delights children and their families
The RCPCH have been looking at a way to maintain the clinical and professional standards of its medical membership while integrated with other health care professionals. However as you may be aware a motion to push forward with a Foundation of Child Health was defeated at the recent EGM. The process raised a number of questions about how members can put forward their views in matters as important as governance and structure. This was a concern from both sides of the debate on the proposed changes to the council and the creation of a Foundation of Child Health.
A recent e-mail from Dr. Hilary Cass has asked members to get in contact with their regional representatives (copying in firstname.lastname@example.org) in relation to the prospect of electronic/postal voting and the best method of consulting on future structural change.
Views are needed by the 5th November. This is an important debate, and while the time scale is short and clinical pressures high at this time of year, it is important that as many members as possible have their views heard.
