North Wales Faculty

Welcome from the North Wales Faculty 

A warm welcome from North Wales Faculty. We are a group of volunteer RCGP members who provide local networking, education and support for members in the area. We cover an area stretching from Barmouth to Flint, supporting over 420 members, Fellows, Associates and Associates in Training.

The Faculty has a particular interest in supporting our members' CPD and professional development and provide a range of education courses, tailored to local needs, as well as bursaries and awards to support and recognise innovation and development.  

Get involved

We meet four times per year; the next meeting will take place on 7 June 2018, with subsequent meetings in September and November. Here we progress our local engagement activities and discuss issues pertinent to our members, which are then fed back to Welsh Council and College Council.

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 and to raise awareness of the demographic issues and needs of GPs and patients alike.

If you would like to find out more about the Faculty and your local GP network we would be delighted to hear from you.

Upcoming events

We provide education courses and networking events throughout the region and many of these events contribute to CPD and professional development.   

If you have ideas or suggestions for what would benefit the membership locally please contact the Faculty - your views are important.

How to survive as a new GP

Starting out as a newly qualified GP is exciting - the start if a stimulating and rewarding career. But it can also be tough. Overwhelmed, unsupported, isolated: these are words sometimes mentioned by those who have left their training posts and starting out as independent general practitioners. What should be the beginning of an inspirational and fulfilling journey can be tainted by clinical uncertainty, time pressures and a lack of sense of direction.
