BTS Committees and Advisory Groups

The Society undertook a review of governance arrangements in 2015. The basis of this review was to streamline our structure, lend more effective support to our strategic planning processes and improve internal communications in relation to our Committees and Advisory Groups.  

The BTS Board is responsible for BTS strategy, developing policy with advice from Council,  and overseeing and monitoring the planning and delivery of all the Society's activities. Members of the BTS Board (the Society's Trustees) include the five Honorary Officers and Chairs of our main ("Standing") Committees. 

Our main Committees develop activities in line with BTS strategy. You can read more about the roles and remits of our Committees by following the links below. 

Our network of Advisory Groups act as our "eyes and ears" and assist by responding to national consultations, suggesting topics for conferences and short courses, and where required, by developing specific activities for the Society. The Chairs of our Specialty Trainees and Nurse Advisory Groups also serve on BTS Council, ex-officio.

The Committee Structure can be found here.
