Union Update

Hi everyone,

It’s currently a very busy time for ICSMSU with ICSMSU Exec elections now upon us! Nominations close in less than a week so if you are considering running for an ICSMSU Exec position, you can nominate yourself here until the end of this week.

Sadly it’s also that time of year when ICSM RAG has to come to an end. I hope you’ve all enjoyed all the ICSM RAG events throughout the year, and are looking forward to lots more RAGgy fun next year. You’ve all been phenomenal in raising money for the Winnicott Foundation this year, so on behalf of the ICSM RAG committee, I’d just like to say a huge thank you to each and every one of you that’s collected at any of the ICSM RAG events in support of the Winnicott Foundation!

Finally, you may have seen media coverage about the future of the North West London hospitals as part of the ‘Shaping a Healthier Future’ consultation – you can read all the latest information (including the Imperial College response to this) on our homepage here at icsmsu.com.


ICSMSU Exec nominations open until this Sunday 3rd March!

You can read more about all the positions available here, and find out all the details about elections here.

You can nominate yourself here until this Sunday 3rd March at 23.59.

If you are considering running for an ICSMSU Exec position, please feel free to get in touch with the relevant ICSMSU Exec Officer to find out more about the role.

It’s an extremely rewarding experience so please do consider running! No prior experience is necessary for any of the positions, and you’re never too young or too old!
