UK Council for Clinical Communication

The UK Council for Clinical Communication in Undergraduate Medical Education was set up over 20 years ago and consists of representatives from all UK medical schools’  Clinical Communication teachers. Each medical school can nominate up to 4 representatives who have access to this website which contains excellent teaching resources for clinical communication and an active discussion forum with peers.

There are educational meetings twice a year that are free for members to attend. Each school has two votes at UKCCC meetings. Member institutions also receive free attendance for 2 representatives to the highly valued UK Clinical Communication conference every 2 years, worth £500. Most importantly, it provides an invaluable network of colleagues who are all motivated and working towards excellence in Clinical Communication teaching.

  • We enable good teaching practice to be shared and encourage research and development of effective teaching in clinical communication.
  • We support the development of teaching materials, hold a bank of scenarios and publish on clinical communication teaching and strategy.

We welcome membership from all UK medical schools, for more information please email:

Our UKCCC officers are:

Chair: Janet Lefroy

Vice Chair: Harvey Wells

Secretary: Suzanne Stewart

Treasurers: Ching-Wa Chung and Leeanne Bodkin

Engagement Officer: Caroline Sprake

Administrator: Claire Mimnagh:
