Structure of the HCSA

HCSA is a democratic organisation that alongside individual workplace representation for its members seeks to represent their views and interests, and those of the wider community of hospital doctors, in every workplace and Trust across the UK.

To do so the HCSA has a team of paid National Officers who work closely with a network of Hospital Representatives locally to serve members.

The HCSA is governed by its ruling Council, whose members are elected on a three-yearly basis. In turn it elects members to an executive committee who carry out day-to-day oversight of the association's affairs.

In addition there are three sub-committees of the Executive covering Finance, Policy and Communications.
