About us

We support over 1850 members, Fellows, Associates and Associates in Training in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Northamptonshire.

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.

The session offers 2.5 hours of CPD and is FREE to First5s in the Faculty. Book via our events page, or contact our Faculty Administrator,
