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

The Faculty recently held the first North Wales GP Schools Engagement Session in Llandudno. 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, mostly in Q&A format, was attended by 84 Year 11-13 pupils from across the region. Speakers at the session included many enthusiastic local GPs, a GP trainee, a medical student, as well as a representative from Careers Wales and three universities.

At our last meeting, the Faculty voted on the RCGP's campaign and policy priorities and the faculty budget plan for 2018-2019. We had some valuable discussions at our Faculty Board meeting and I would like to everyone for your contributions and input.

On 24 November 2017, RCGP Wales held the New Members Ceremony and General Practice Awards Evening at Hensol Castle. A superb event set in wonderful surroundings, 39 new members were welcomed to the College by the College President Professor Mayur Lakhani, who presented them with their certificates of membership.

Congratulations to Dr Richard Cooper from Roseneath Medical Practice, Buckley, who was a finalist in the the GP of the Year 2017 category, and to Uwchaled Medical Practice in Cerrigydrudion who were finalists in The Practice Team of the Year Award. See a full list of the 2017 winners and runners up.

Associates in Training, Dr Nicola Murphy and Dr Jo Sophia Philips, were this year's Annual Conference Bursary winners. They will be coming along to our February Board Meeting to share their experiences with us.
