Multi-Disciplinary Joint Committee (MJC) Head and Neck Surgery
The creation of this group, to which all specialties are welcome, create a forum for collaborative working to benefit our patients in the future. The next step will be to invite delegates from all Sections within UEMS and then elect an executive of chair and secretary.

Group II Chair and Secretary: Patrick Magennis re-elected as Chair, Hans Peter Ulrich elected as secretary
Group II is the surgical grouping within UEMS. There are 2 others, Group 1 - Medicine and Group 3, the remaining specialties. The Chair of each Grouping sits with the Executive Committee of UEMS making it the Expanded Executive Committee. Patrick was re-elected for a second term, based on all the contributions he made during his first term. Hans-Peter Ulrich has previously served UEMS as a Vice President and will deliver his usual work-rate and pragmatism.

There is a lot of work involved in these roles, but there is also the opportunities to make contributions on behalf of the family of surgery.
