New Ethics Committee Chair

We are pleased to announce, on behalf of the Board of the Faculty, that Dr Bob Jefferson has been appointed as the new Chair of the Ethics Committee for an initial period of three years.

Dr Jefferson succeeds Dr Paul Litchfield who stepped down from this role earlier in the year; the Faculty is indebted to Dr Litchfield for his leadership of the Ethics Committee over the last six years.  His tenure has covered some contentious issues, including the GMC’s revised guidance on confidentiality and consent, and he oversaw the publication of the seventh iteration of the Faculty’s ethical guidance which was published in December 2012 as Ethics guidance for occupational health practice, to reflect its application to the wider health community.
