Beds and Herts

11 June 2018

Welcome to the latest issue of your Beds and Herts' Faculty, bringing you the latest news and developments from our Faculty and Central College.

We have had a great summer filled with sunshine and are now at the start of an exciting new academic year.

I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all the AiTs who have just qualified and started their journey as independent practitioners. You are now our First 5 doctors and we wish you all the very best as you embark on your career as a General Practitioner.

I would also like to welcome all the new AiTs who have recently started their training. Please get to know your AiT representatives and keep an eye on our learning events, as we have lots of exciting courses coming up which will supplement your learning and help you prepare for your exams over the next few years. 

Every year we run about 30 courses. Theses courses are diverse and aim to address a large part of the RCGP curriculum. We are running GP Update courses periodically throughout the year, dermatology masterclasses with PCDS and our minor surgery and joint injection courses are still in high demand and need to be booked well in advance.

In March we are running a 2-day GP Conference. There will be clinical workshops and lectures. There will also be workshops on pensions and finance, the future of General practice, updates on appraisal and revalidation and so much more. We are also excited to announce some confirmed key note speakers, Sir David Haslam (Chair of the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) and Dr Iona Heath (former RCGP President). We also have Dr Roger Neighbour (Author of the Inner Consultation) and Dr Peter Graves (Chair of Beds and Herts LMC) who will be speaking at the conference. We have set up an early bird price for all tickets types, please book your place. Register now.

Please have a look at our website to see all the events that we have coming up this year. If you have a learning need that is not addressed by the courses listed, please get in touch with the Faculty Office.

Join us at the Faculty's Annual Dinner on 24 October to celebrate new Members and Fellows as well as recognise, via a series of awards, colleagues who have made outstanding contributions to the profession during last year. Nominees and winners will be announced at the dinner. Dr Mayur Lakhani, RCGP President, will be in attendance to present the awards and provide the after-dinner talk.

Just a reminder if you're not already following us on social media, please go on our Facebook and Twitter pages and like and share our posts.

Finally, we look forward to seeing you at our events during the year.

Dr Emma Salik
Education Lead, Beds and Herts Faculty
