Yorkshire Faculty

Welcome from the Yorkshire Faculty. We support over 2040 members, Fellows, Associates and Associates in Training in the Yorkshire area, which covers West Yorkshire (Leeds, Wakefield, Kirklees, Calderdale) and Harrogate. Alongside supporting our local GPs, we also strive to be the first point of contact for our members. Our board members include medical students from the Leeds GPSoc, First5s and members at all stages of their career. The Yorkshire Faculty is one of few Faculties to also have non-GP members on its board including nurses and clinical pharmacists.

Board meetings

We rely on members to play an active role locally, promoting the college and the Faculty's aims and objectives but also, we rely on you to bring your ideas to the Faculty board about how we can continue to improve the services that we offer. All members are welcome to attend Faculty board meetings, which take place four times a year (February, June, September and November) online via Zoom. The Yorkshire Faculty board is made up of a wide range or members from Medical Students from the Leeds GPSoc, FY doctors, AiTs, First5s and members at all stages of their career. We also have non GP members on the board including nurses, and clinical pharmacists.

Local training and development

We are keen to support the educational and training needs of our members and regularly arrange social and educational events within Yorkshire to help members network with their peers.


November 2023

We support our GP members within their first five years following CCT. We have First5 representatives on our faculty board who are keen to support First5 colleagues and organise initiatives to bring them together. They can be contacted via the faculty office.


November 2023

The Faculty actively encourages its members of 5 years' plus standing to consider putting themselves forward for Fellowship. We have a Fellowship lead within the faculty who can offer advice and support. Please contact us if you would like to discuss this further.
