South London Faculty
Welcome from the South London Faculty. We support over 1950 Members, Fellows, Associates and Associates in Training throughout the South London area. One of our main priorities is to engage with all members, especially new members. We recognise the need for support and advice during the transition from registrar to principal in the first year of College membership, and so we are developing networking and social events to assist with this. You can find out more by emailing us and keeping up-to-date with the latest newsletters and events.
The Faculty is committed to supporting your professional development and wellbeing through engagement, networking and social events run across the calendar year. Many of these are offered to members free of charge. All our events can be found by searching our courses and events.
We hold quarterly board meetings in February, June, September and November, to discuss a range of topics surrounding general practice and what further support could be offered to GPs at all stages of their career. We also have representation on College Council to feedback on issues discussed here.
We also have enhanced the role of Faculty representation at Council, and as a Board hope to gain more grass roots views on issues or motions to present to the national RCGP Council. Please do get in touch as Dr David Mummery would be happy to put something forward if it is an issue you are passionate about and feel the RCGP could be doing more on.
RCGP London AiT / First5 Committee
This organisation has been established about 10 years ago to represent the interests of GP Trainees across London. It is supported by all three RCGP London Faculties (North East, North and West, and South London). Current Committee Chair is our own South London First5 Lead, Dr Alexander Lai. Committee hosts four meetings a year. For more information please contact us.
