North Wales Faculty
Croeso / Welcome from the North Wales Faculty. We aim to provide the benefits of RCGP membership to colleagues closer to home. You are probably reading this because you already work in North Wales in where you are also most likely to be enjoying the beautiful beaches and fantastic countryside it offers. The North Wales Faculty covers an area stretching from Barmouth to Flint and is one of the smallest Faculties with 373 members, Fellows, and Associates in training.
We provide education courses and networking events throughout the region and many of these events contribute to CPD and professional development.
Next Board meeting
Board meeting dates for 2024:
- Tuesday 20 February 2024, 19:00 at The Imperial Hotel, Llandudno
- 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.
