One Organisation, One Name

One Organisation, One Name

Your vote matters!

Find out more about our One Organisation One Name campaign and details of our AGM on 30th June and how you can take part.

There’s a critical vote coming up about the name of our organisation at the forthcoming annual general meeting (AGM) in June.  

In 2016 Council agreed to join our two organisations, the Society and the College together. Now it is proposed that we formally adopt just one name and as set out in our constitution, this can only happen if enough members vote for the proposal in the AGM on 30th June 2018 in central London.

We face really important challenges in the months ahead to ensure our voice is heard in key debates on patient health, regulation and the future of our profession. We have an ambitious strategy, based on what members told us were the right priorities for our future. Delivery of this strategy relies on having a strong and forward-looking organisation with a clear and focused message, name and brand.

The name proposed by Council is: 


The College of Podiatry

Representing chiropodists and podiatrists across the UK


If you would like to know more about the background and journey to this proposal there is information in this section of the website and there are regularly updated Q&As which are informed by questions and discussions with members.

We very much hope you will support this crucial change to give us the identity we need to make a difference. 

If you have any questions not answered at present by the Q&A you can email them to CEO Steve Jamieson at feedback@scpod.org.

It’s your AGM and your vote! 

Our Annual General Meeting (AGM) is on Saturday, 30 June 2018 and will be held at the Royal College of Nursing (RNC) at 20 Cavendish Square, London W1G 0RN from 10am with refreshments available from 9.30am.
