  • Represent the College on external forums
  • Support the work of the College with their professional experience and expertise
  • Act as advocates for the College and its activities
  • Develop a proactive annual work programme for the LAG

Members of the Committee will be expected to become involved in the work of one of the committees relating to the following areas:

  • Charitable College Activity
  • Governance
  • Education, Exams & Standards
  • External Medical Lay Committee
  • International
  • Internal Systems
