Key Appointments for RMCH Staff

Two members of staff at Royal Manchester Children's Hospital have been elected to key roles for the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health:


Dr Carol Ewing - Vice President for Health Policy

The primary focus of this role is to lead on the College's strategy and policy development to support the design and delivery of safe and sustainable child health services. The Vice President (VP) will also support (jointly with the VP for Research) the programme of work under the College's Quality Improvement Framework and will have responsibility for leading the RCPCH's work on service reconfiguration, developing and auditing service standards as well as supporting the programme of work on invited reviews.

The post is responsible for overseeing the work of officers within the Research and Policy Division who have specific responsibility for workforce planning, quality improvement, health promotion and child protection. Honorary Officers and Committee Chairs responsible for these areas will report directly to the Vice President.


Dr Lisa Kauffmann - Treasurer

The Honorary Treasurer is a Senior Officer and Trustee, responsible for overseeing the College's finances. While ultimate responsibility for the finances lies with Council, the Honorary Treasurer consults and advises the full Board. The Honorary Treasurer also chairs the Finance and Corporate Services Committee, which undertakes detailed scrutiny of the College's finances.



The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) was founded in 1996 and is responsible for training and examining paediatricians in the UK. The College has over 14,000 members in the UK and abroad, and sets standards for professional and postgraduate medical education.
