The Executive Council of the BCRS performs many vital functions for all BC radiologists. We represent radiologists at negotiation and arbitration tables. We see to it that the voice of radiology is heard at the Society of Specialist Physicians and Surgeons meetings. We make fee allocations, submit new fee items, and liaise with MSP. We attempt to expand the role of community imaging clinics to ensure they remain viable. We take concerns and initiatives to the appropriate government bodies. We have a great impact on radiology in BC.

If you are a radiologist in BC, we represent your interests and we have materially benefited you in the recent past. If you are a member, thank you! If you are not, make this the year you join the BCRS and get involved in your future. We need your support in our ongoing efforts on your behalf. You can surely add to what we do.
