Ian Bullock has been appointed chief executive of the Royal College of Physicians. 

Prior to his appointment to the interim chief executive role in 2015, Ian was the executive director of the care quality improvement department, which encompassed leadership of the existing clinical standards department with the National Clinical Guideline Centre (NCGC).

Bullock originally joined the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) in 2009 as chief operating officer for the NCGC, leading on the successful merger of four acute guideline centres into one.
