Next Board meeting

Board meeting dates for 2024:

  • Tuesday 4 June 2024, 19:00 via Zoom
  • Tuesday 3 September 2024, via Zoom
  • Tuesday 12 November 2024, via Zoom (This meeting includes the AGM) 

The Faculty Board is made up of local GP volunteers who provide local networking, education, and support for members in the area. We meet four times per year to progress local engagement activities and discuss issues pertinent to members, which are then fed back to Welsh Council and College Council. Local members are 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.
