About us

The Faculty supports over 1500 Members, Fellows, Associates and Associates in Training in Southern Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and most of Nottinghamshire.

We are proud to support the Nottingham University Medical School General Practice Society (GPSoc.). GPSoc. is devoted to helping students discover more about one of the broadest and most rewarding specialties in medicine. The society aims to promote General Practice as a specialty to all medical students and provide thorough career advice. With events ranging from career talks to communication workshops including celebrity guest speakers, GPSoc. was devised to help medical students have a real idea of what a career in General Practice entails.  For further information, please visit their website or email GPSoc.

Getting involved

We rely on members to play an active role locally, promoting the College aims and objectives. It is essential to raise and maintain awareness of demographic issues and needs of GPs and patients alike, and develop initiatives to support these.

If you would like to find out more about becoming involved with the faculty we would be delighted to hear from you.

Faculty Initiatives


The Faculty has over 100 Fellows and is keen to award more fellowships to recognise the efforts of our members.

We want fellowship to reward both ‘grassroots’ members who concentrate on providing excellent patient care in their practices, and members who have made significant contributions in other areas for example, in education, service development and research.

Fellowship nominations for consideration by the Faculty Fellowship Committee are welcome. For further information, please email

Further information about Fellowship


We attend Careers Events for local Medical Students at the Nottingham University Medical School. Please contact for further information.
