Faculty Board meetings

Our Faculty Board meets four times per year in March, 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 if you're interested in attending or finding out more about how you can get involved.

Our Annual General Meeting will be held in September, which will be an online event so it’s easy to attend! Please keep an eye on this page for the date which is currently being confirmed.
