External Affairs Committee

The External Affairs Committee aims to raise the profile of the ACPGBI and coloproctology with opinion-formers and decision-makers, to interact with patient groups and to improve stakeholder engagement. Ensuring that all ACPGBI communication channels, including social media, are effective and professional is a key part of our work.
