South West Wales

Will MackintoshWelcome to the South West Wales Faculty's blog where you can read all our latest news.

The Faculty recently held a safeguarding, diabetes, CSA Preparation Course and dermoscopy courses.

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 AGM and I would like to thank you for your contributions and input.

In November, we welcomed the RCGP Chair Professor Helen Stokes-Lampard to her home city of Swansea where she visited Swansea Medical School, Penyrheol Comprehensive School, staff at Ty'r Felin Surgery, Gower College and also presented the Harvard Davis Lecture to local members.

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. 

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.

With best wishes

Dr Will Mackintosh
Chair, South West Wales Faculty
