Humber and the Ridings Faculty

Welcome from Humber and the Ridings Faculty

Welcome to the Humber and the Ridings Faculty. We support over 460 Members, Fellows, Associates and Associates in Training in the Humber and the Ridings area which covers the North and East Riding of Yorkshire, North Lincolnshire, North East Lincolnshire and the Vale of York. We're a small Faculty with big talent, and were winners of the 2017 Vibrant Faculties Award in recognition of our great relationship with our retired members. We pride ourselves on offering quality, tailored CPD and professional training courses to our members and the GP workforce in our area. We're big on recognition too, and each year we host an annual dinner and 'Celebrating General Practice' event to reward the skills and efforts of our members, whatever the stage of their career.

Get involved

Our Faculty Board meets four times per year in February, June, September and November and is made up of GP volunteers including representatives from Hull GP Society, Hull and York Medical School (HYMS), First5 and AiT committees, as well as representation for Fellows and a regional Education Lead. The purpose of Faculty Board meetings is to discuss and progress our local engagement activities and to highlight any issues which are pertinent to our members. Our local issues and opinions are then fed back to College Council. Faculty Board meetings are held in various locations across Humber and the Ridings for the benefit of our members. We're always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to get involved and help shape our Faculty Board. Please email humberside@rcgp.org.uk if you're interested in finding out more about how you can get involved.

Upcoming events

We run many education courses and social/networking events throughout the year. Many of these contribute to CPD and professional development.

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 News

The RCGP has teamed up with Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD) to develop confidential bespoke practice and patient-level drug prescribing reports, available for free for GP practices contributing to CPRD, and Humber and the Ridings faculty are proud to show them our support.

These Quality Improvement reports enable:

  • patient-level case finding for contraindicated drug prescribing
  • easy review of individual patient care plans
  • confidential benchmarking against GP practices across the UK
  • collection of evidence for annual appraisals under Good Medical Practice Domain 2 (Safety and Quality)

Everything you need to know about this project is available at www.cprd.com/generalpractitioner/QualityImprovementProject.asp This also includes details of how you can get involved and resources for your practice.

New Medical Student and Foundation Doctor Committee launched

RCGP has launched a new committee for medical student and foundation doctors. This new committee will build on the work upon the successes of the Student Projects Group which is now in its second year and will continue to support and empower GP Societies, where the MSFY committee will be project led and provide executive oversight.

Local student and foundation doctor members are invited to join and take part in the new committee. Full information, including their purpose, mission and next steps is outlined here.
