Dr Paul Myres. Chair, North Wales FacultyWelcome to the North Wales Faculty's blog where you can read all our latest news.

The Faculty has a GP Schools Engagement Session, GpwSI Evening and Mens Health event planned for the coming months.

The second North Wales GP Schools Engagement Session will take place in Llandudno on the 20 of September at the Venue Cymru Conference Centre following the success of last years event. The brainchild of Old Colwyn GP, Dylan Parry, it was planned with the aim of providing a focal point for GPs to engage with local school pupils, hopefully inspiring them to become family doctors.

The session, is a mixture of Q and A and interactive sessions, and will be attended by Year 11-13 pupils from across the region. Speakers at the session will included many enthusiastic local GPs, a GP trainees, medical students. as well as a representative from three universities.

Council made the decision to introduce a local functions consultation to ascertain what needs to be done to remain relevant to our members and deliver on the goals that the College has set. Faculties are the face of the College locally and our participation is vital, I would encourage everyone to complete the survey as we want to hear from as many members as possible to seek out local opinions and ensuring that these views are fed back to the College. The Faculty Board will be discussing the consultation in detail at the next board meeting and issuing a faculty response before the initial discussion period closes on 30 September 2018.

This year’s New Members Ceremony will be held on 9 November at Hensol Castle, this is a great event for newly qualified GPs and their families to celebrate.

The faculty is always interested in recruiting new board members so if you are interested in medical education and shaping the future of general practice please come along to our AGM & Board Meeting on the 7 November in Llandudno.
