Isolde Shore-Nye. South East Wales FacultyWelcome to the South East Wales Faculty's blog where you can read all our latest news.

I was delighted to be elected on the evening of the AGM as the new Faculty Chair. I am looking forward to developing this role as an advocate for General Practice and the College.

Since taking up the Chair I have represented RCGP SE Wales at UK Council in London, and in January 2018 at the first RCGP Chairs conference and Winter dinner, raising the profile of GPs in Wales in our specialist role as expert medical generalists.

The Faculty recently held events including: a Good Practice Safeguarding Day, What next GPs looking for the next challenge and Bright Ideas. Be the Best You and Elderly Medicine will be taking place in March and booking is now available.

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 thank you for your contributions and input.

At our Annual General Meeting we welcomed Dr Roger Neighbour and he delivered a talk entitled Would Einstein have made a good GP?

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

Huge congratulations to Dr Richard Evans from Llanilar Health Centre, Aberystwyth who is the GP of the Year 2017. Dr Evans was presented with the award by the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Services Vaughan Gething, AM.

The Practice Team of the Year Award was won by the Abersychan Medical Practice, Pontypool. Thank you to all those who nominated and congratulations to all of the finalists.

Congratulations to Steffan Gimblett and the Pontardawe Primary Care Centre for receiving the RCGP Wales Bright Idea Award 2017 for introducing QR info pods for patients, including links to online services.

Bright Ideas is open to you and your teams and is a great way of rewarding innovation in general practice.

The Faculty will meet in Cardiff on 13 February 2018 and it would be great to welcome new colleagues.

With best wishes

Dr Isolde Shore-Nye
Chair, South East Wales Faculty
