South East Scotland

Welcome from South East Scotland Faculty

A warm welcome from South East Scotland Faculty.  We are a group of volunteer RCGP members who provide local networking, education and support for members in the area. We cover Edinburgh, East and West Lothian, the Scottish Borders and south Fife, supporting 1200 RCGP Members, Fellows and AiTs. As a Faculty, we have a particular interest in supporting our members' CPD and professional development and provide a range of education courses, tailored to local needs, including supporting local medical students and our trainees as well as a number awards to support and recognise innovation and development.

Get involved

We meet four times per year, in February, June, September and November to progress our local engagement activities and discuss issues pertinent to our members, which are then fed back to both Scottish and UK Council. All local members are very welcome to attend Board meetings and participate in these discussions – we are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help us develop our local engagement programme. Our next meeting will be held at 25 Queen Street, Edinburgh on 04 September 2018.

Upcoming events

We run many education courses and social/networking events throughout the year including two annual lectures - the Keynote Lecture and the Richard Scott Lecture held in conjunction with the Department of General Practice at the University of Edinburgh, in memory of Richard Scott the first Professor of General Practice.  Many of these contribute to CPD and professional development.
