Representing and supporting medical oncologists in the UK
The Association of Cancer Physicians
The ACP is recognised by the Royal College of Physicians and the Department of Health as the specialty association for medical oncologists. The executive committee is made up of democratically elected clinicians representing the views and concerns of the membership. Membership of the ACP gives medical oncologists an independent voice in the affairs of the Royal College of Physicians, the Joint Collegiate Council for Oncology (JCCO) and the Specialty Advisory Committee (SAC), who supervise training and accreditation.
Through this, we:
Promote the views and interests of medical oncologists to the DoH and RCP
Influence policy on consultant expansion
Develop training curricula and the upcoming specialty examination
Participate in NICE appraisal and guideline development
Encourage the development of best practice to benefit patients
Nominate members for National Clinical Excellence Awards
