Organisational Structure and Committees

As the UK’s leading independent doctors’ organisation, we represent our members’ interests through education, networking, appraisal, revalidation, and regulatory advice.

The current members of the Executive Board are as follows:

Committees

The IDF Executive Board has given responsibility for certain elements of the organisation’s work to various committees. By distributing work in this way, we ensure that many individual members get to play an active role in the organisation, and are engaged and proactive in helping us to keep on moving forward.

The committees feed back to the Executive Board, following their meetings, to seek endorsement for any decisions taken. For details of when these committees meet, please see our events calendar.
