We support over 1200 members, Fellows, Associates and Associates in Training in the Borders, Edinburgh, Lothians and the south of Fife.
Continuous professional development is high on the Faculty agenda with a varied programme of events. We cater for all members of the primary care team from AiTs right the way through to retired GPs. We have recently run a series of First5 events focusing on topics that are relevant to GPs at the commencement of their career.
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 next Faculty Board meeting will be held 8 February 2017.
All members are invited to attend board meetings. If you would like to discuss any item covered or would like an item to be considered at a future meeting, please contact us.
The AGM took place on 31 October 2016, the Faculty annual reports are below
