  • Need to encourage more specialty and regional cooperation and collegiate involvement

  • Need to suggest mechanisms of improving trainee engagement to Council

  • Reviewing role and stating its function - ‘Who we are’ paper

  • Most other Collegiate trainee groups have same concerns

  • Meetings 4 times per year – London

  • Disparate and poorly attended

  • Concern over the role & power of this group


Concerns of tsab role

Concerns of TSAB Role

  • Not sure of our role/position within the College

  • Fluid membership and variable uptake & linkage with other SABs

  • Ability to engage collegiate trainee membership

  • Trainee related events occur in the college with limited/no involvement of the TSAB (Eg symposium in December)


Suggestions for development

Suggestions for Development

  • Ability to e-mail trainee members through Collegiate Support

  • Election of TSAB representatives by collegiate members?

  • RCSEd Sports Society and associated Symposia

    • Audiovisual and webcasting support

    • Use of College facilities

  • Improved involvement of TSAB members in Collegiate events/teaching/courses/symposia

  • Regional trainee meetings with support from College Officers


Sports society

Sports Society

  • Originated out of Annual Intercollegiate Rugby

  • Need to generate funds to sustain teams

  • Valuable linkage with Medical School and for members

  • Expansion of role

  • Industry sponsored symposia to be available to members


Issues for consideration

Issues for consideration

Issues for consideration1

Issues for consideration

  • ‘Sub-Consultant’ Grades

    • Acknowledge that the numbers are very difficult

    • Yet to see value in creation of another grade

    • Post-CCT Progression needs defined

    • How is service to be delivered?

    • Public debate on Service delivery and by whom

    • Possible need to re-define consultant careers

    • Progression is integral to any renegotiation of grades

    • Address issue of imbalance in numbers

      • Contraction of training numbers

      • Medical School Output


Conclusion

Conclusion

  • Membership attendance variable but opportunity to rationalise and change

  • Role is somewhat uncertain and caught between various groups and roles

  • Need for more proactivity

  • Support sought from Council for this role
