Tony PalframanWelcome to the latest issue of your East Anglia Faculty blog, bringing you the latest news and developments from our Faculty and Central College.

I have been a GP in South Norfolk for the last 30 years. Four years ago I decided to take my pension and reduced my commitment in the practice to half time. Since then I have never been busier.

I joined South Norfolk CCG as a governing body member and quickly became the mental health lead. As the Norfolk CCGs have come together I have chaired the Mental Health Network and more recently the Mental Health STP for Norfolk and Waveney. We are moving forward in many directions including Perinatal Mental Health, Psychosis, improving flow of patients through the system and so on.

As well as mental health I am part of the teams transforming diabetes and dermatology. Teaching remains an important part of my professional life. I am a trainer and facilitate South Norfolk Trainers group which meets monthly. Being part of the RCGP and helping future and current colleagues is very rewarding.

My plans to work in the garden and improve my photography have been put on hold. My poor wife is having to take on many of the garden projects alone and as we have over three acres this is no small task. She has become an expert on the tractor and I am not sure whether I shall get a look in. I am still required for the construction part of our garden plans and today for example I have constructed a large poly tunnel.

For the last decade I have been a landscape photographer. Every year I try and get away with like-minded friends to enjoy nature at its best and to capture this on film (well computer really). I have plans to start printing out some of the best and to redesign my website.
