Vale of Trent Faculty

Welcome from the Vale of Trent Faculty, a group of volunteers including RCGP members, lay member, foundation doctors and medical students. Our geographical area stretches from Ashbourne to Skegness and includes Boston, Derby, Lincoln, Mansfield and Nottingham. The board aims to support our members’ professional development by arranging educational, networking and special events for GPs and GP registrars and also careers events for medical students and foundation doctors. We are proud to work with the local General Practice Society to help medical students discover more about one of the broadest and most rewarding specialties in medicine.

RCGP Fellowship

March 2022

The Faculty has over 100 Fellows and is keen to award more fellowships to recognise the efforts of our members. We want fellowship to reward both ‘grassroots’ members who concentrate on providing excellent patient care in their practices, and members who have made significant contributions in other areas for example, in education, service development and research. Fellowship nominations for consideration by the Faculty Fellowship Committee are welcome. For further information, please email contact us. For more information see the RCGP Fellowship page.


March 2022

We attend Careers Events for local Medical Students at the Nottingham University Medical School. Please contact us for further information.
