South West Thames Faculty

Welcome from South West Thames Faculty

A warm welcome from South West Thames Faculty. We provide support to over 1900 Members, Fellows, Associates and AiTs in Surrey, West Sussex and the outer fringes of South West London. As well as a full range of educational and social activities, we run a revalidation programme for local members in collaboration with the South-East Thames Faculty and Health Education England Ken, Surrey and Sussex.

Get involved

We hold four Board meetings a year (in February, June, September and November) to develop our engagement events and activities as well as discussing issues relevant to our members, which we feed back to the College Council. We rely on members to play an active role locally, promoting the College's aims and objectives. It is essential to raise and maintain awareness of demographic issues and the needs of GPs and patients alike, so that we can support these. We are currently looking for new AiT representatives to join the Board; if you would like to find out more about becoming more involved with the faculty we would be delighted to hear from you.

Upcoming events

We are keen to support the educational and training needs of our AiTs. We are also involved in other educational and career development events throughout the year.

Faculty Initiatives

Current Research

Commit To Change is a pilot project run by Surrey University and NHS Kingston CCG. Its aim is to help people achieve health goals by making online 'commitment contracts'. Participants either take part for free or give money to a charity of their choice if they fail to carry out their commitments.

The John Lasserson Award

Dr John Lasserson MRCGP was the Honorary Treasurer of our faculty for many years. He was a GP in an outer suburb of London and also worked as a GP trainer for 25 years. He took great pride in practising clinical care to the highest standard, and encouraging others to do the same. We are pleased to have, together with his family, established an award in his name.

The John Lasserson Award is presented annually to the highest scoring trainee of the GP examinations from the South West Thames Faculty. The award consists of £300, and a framed certificate.

Faculty Audit and Research Grant

We are awarding small grants of up to £200 to GPs and practice nurses to help with the cost of practice audits and small-scale research projects. This scheme is designed to cut through bureaucracy and paperwork and make small awards available to grass roots GPs and practice nurses.

South East Thames and South West Thames and Brighton and Sussex Medical School Student Prize

For Brighton and Sussex Medical School students only, the RCGP South East Thames and South West Thames Faculties are sponsoring a competition whereby the BSMS tutors invite their top twenty students to submit a reflection, on one side of A4, giving their thoughts on general practice. The tutors shortlist the entries and then invite the two faculties to agree the awards. The faculties will then publish the winning entries in their e-bulletin to members. First prize is a cheque for £200, second prize £100 and third prize £50.
