Professor Tom Solomon of the University of Liverpool and Walton Centre NHS Foundation Trust has been elected as one of five new Councillors of the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) of London.
The College was founded more than 500 years ago by a Royal Charter from King Henry VIII and is the oldest medical college in England. It continues to play a pivotal role driving improvements in health and healthcare through advocacy, education and research. New councillors are elected by the College’s 36,000 strong membership.
As an elected member of the Council, Professor Solomon brings extensive leadership and policy experience, working with the UK government, House of Commons, and the World Health Organisation to achieve changes in health policy and practice.
Professor Solomon said: “This is a critical time for medicine in the UK, with Brexit looming, and other key challenges such as climate change and air quality. The College plays an essential role in representing the healthcare community and patients more widely, and it is a great honour to have been elected by the membership.”
RCP president Professor Andrew Goddard said: “It’s hugely inspiring to see such a diverse and high-quality field of physicians applying for these leadership roles, and is a real strength for the RCP. It’s a really exciting time to be joining us as we continue to inspire higher standards in health and healthcare, and with our new office in Liverpool, RCP at the Spine, due to complete construction next year. These appointments are testament to the importance of the college in the minds of physicians and affirm that our messages are in tune with the views of our members.”
