2019 BHRS Council News – Elections
BHRS Council has been actively considering the composition of Council. We have recently expanded the number of physiologist and nurse representatives which is indicative of the huge amount of work being done by these professions on Council and the increasingly important role these groups have in delivering arrhythmia patient care. We also now have formal physician representation from Wales and are actively seeking a representative from Scotland.
We have considered that Council can be perceived as London centred in terms of its composition and also that the physician representatives are almost exclusively involved in ablation work and of male gender. This year will see a large number of council seats become available providing members the opportunity to stand for election including a president elect, 3 doctor, 3 physiologist and 3 nurse specialist positions.
To address th is perception and composition of Council further it has been agreed that at least one of the physician seats will be allocated to a physician from a non-ablating centre. We would also strongly encourage our female physician members to stand for election and hopefully anticipate the membership will support moving towards a more balanced Council.
We plan to start the election process in May/June this year, with more details to follow soon. When being nominated or when voting, members will require their membership number to do so. Please have this to hand or alternatively email email@example.com
for a reminder.
I encourage members to stand for election to help with developing the BHRS and look forward to seeing a large number of candidates.
