There are 20 Royal College of Ophthalmologists Regional Representatives (RR) who are Council members elected by their regional colleagues. As a Council member, ophthalmologists act as ambassadors and advocates of the RCOphth, directly contributing to the national debate about ophthalmology. Regional representatives are responsible for encouraging feedback and dialogue between their regional colleagues and the RCOphth on topics that affect the work of ophthalmologists and clinical matters.
