The role of our Medical Liaison Officers (MLOs) is to raise the RMBF’s profile and make sure those who need help know where to turn. As an MLO, you will:

  • Liaise with hospitals, medical centres and societies in your area
  • Use your experience and contacts to help raise the RMBF’s profile
  • Keep us up to date with the issues affecting doctors and their families locally, so our help remains relevant across the UK

As part of our Medical Student Programme, the RMBF is also supported by a group of Student MLOs. These are 4th and 5th year medical students who:

  • Raise awareness of the help the RMBF can provide to their colleagues
  • Promote the work of the RMBF amongst other medical societies & associations
  • Provide information to medical students and their families who might need our help
  • Help to identify emerging needs of medical students
  • Assist the RMBF with research projects and provide feedback on proposed RMBF strategies and policies

We provide training, guidance, and useful resources to all our MLOs.

What our MLOs say

I read about becoming a Medical Liaison Officer in the Newsletter and basically thought it was a job that I could do and enjoy!
My aim is to get the message across that the RMBF is there to help. I want the well, confident and successful doctors to think of and suggest the RMBF when faced with a colleague who is ill or in difficulties.
