Welcome to the Leicester Faculty. We support over 840 members, Fellows, Associates and Associates in Training in Leicestershire and Northamptonshire. The faculty runs an extensive educational programme for GPs at all stages of their career. In addition to our educational programme the faculty hosts a number of social events, including the annual retired members lunch, Fellows frolic and the Faculty awards and AGM dinner.
RCGP Leicester Faculty are proud to deliver a number of excellent educational and social events throughout the year. Many of our courses are suitable for practice nurses and primary care staff.
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. All local members are very welcome to attend Board meetings and participate in these discussions. We meet four times a year, in February, June, September and November.
