Regional Groups undertake a wide range of activities (including seminars, conferences, workshops, research and social events) which reflect the IAHCP aim to promote the highest possible standards of patient care and education.
The local Regional Group is a resource, which generates social and professional contact with peers, and facilitates contact between healthcare professionals and those who work in local health care settings. Many Regional Groups are seen as local providers of medical practice education. In addition, many produce newsletters designed to keep members informed on local initiative and provide a medium for members to exchange information and ideas. Regional Groups mirror the organisation of central IAHCP Board, the governing body of the Association. Each is run by a Regional Group Board. At least one representative from each Faculty sits on the IAHCP Board.
