North Scotland Faculty

A warm welcome from North Scotland Faculty. We provide local networking, education and support. The Faculty covers a large geographical footprint that includes Highland and the Western Isles, supporting 370 RCGP members and their peers. As a Faculty that spans rural and urban areas, we have a particular interest in our members having access to CPD and professional development opportunities. We organise a range of education events locally, providing healthcare staff with resources tailored to local needs. We also have bursaries and awards to help our members engage with the College and to recognise innovation and development.
