Invited Reviews

Invited Reviews are confidential reviews undertaken by Colleges and Faculties as a service offered to Trusts/Boards who feel they would benefit from a professional and independent opinion.

Advisory Appointment Committees (AACs)

AACs are the name for the recruitment interviews for consultants in the UK.  As currently the majority of ICM consultant appointments are combined with anaesthetic sessions, the Royal College of Anaesthetists kindly administers all ICM requests for representation on AACs. 

Please visit the AAC page on the RCoA website here for further information, including guidance for RAs and assessors, and contacts.
