An exciting opportunity to become the next President of the League

People, League

The current president, Elizabeth Wood-Dow, has announced that she is standing down in 2026, so the election process has commenced.

As president, you will work with the Executive Committee and members to shape the future of the League to ensure it is fit for purpose and continues to support its members.

Chairing the Executive, Scholarship, and Benevolent Committees, and as a Trustee, you will provide leadership and be involved in decision making in all aspects of the League.

  • You will play a key part in League events such as View Day and host the All Day Meeting.
  • You would be supported by and work closely with the Executive and Charitable fund Committees, and the Trustees.
  • You will also be the key liaison between Barts NHS Trust and the Barts Heritage directors to foster productive working relationships with the League.

As the new incumbent, you’ll spend time shadowing the outgoing president before taking over fully in 2026.

If the President role appeals to you or you’ll find a nomination form in your copy of League News. You can also provide any additional information which you would like the Executive Committee to know about you to support your application.

Please note you will need to add the details of 4 members of the League to support your application. If you know another League member who you think would be the right person, please also encourage them to apply for the role.

If you would like any further information or wish to discuss this in confidence, please contact Nicola Marks, the General Secretary, at
