We are delighted to present our annual report for 2018/2019. The report outlines the progress made under the College’s 2015 – 2020 strategic plan in the 2018/2019 academic year.
Training and recruitment remain top priorities for RCPI and we are continuing to collaborate with stakeholders to develop a better healthcare system.
I am delighted to present our annual report for 2018/2019. It has been a very busy year for the College with much achieved. My vision is to enable our Trainees, Members and Fellows to deliver world-class care in supportive work environments in which patients and clinicians feel respected and valued. The recruitment and retention of doctors has been a key focus of my Presidency for the past two years and remains a priority for RCPI. This report outlines how we are leading ground-breaking research on doctor emigration and doctor burnout. We need to build a health system that will prioritise the wellbeing and support structures for the people who deliver care on the frontline. Despite the challenges that we face as doctors, we continue to be at the forefront of an international movement to improve the system in which we work.
