The RCGP maintains offices across the four countries in the UK and has a Republic of Ireland Faculty, representing our diverse membership. You can learn more about the work our Faculties, and Devolved Councils below.

Local Faculties in the UK

The RCGP supports its membership through a network of local faculties across different regions in the UK. There are currently 32 faculties, including one in Republic of Ireland (see below) and one dedicated to supporting overseas and international members.

Our Members and Associates are automatically allocated to one of the 32 faculties on joining the College, based on their personal post code.

Each faculty is represented by a Faculty Board, made up of a number of dedicated GPs and lay representatives who work voluntarily towards the College’s vision, purpose and priority goals.

Devolved nations and Republic of Ireland

Devolved Council provides national support in Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland, while Faculties provide local and regional support to our members across the UK

The main roles of the Devolved Councils

To take forward the aims and objectives of the College in each of the devolved nations. This is done through contributing to the strategic and policy planning of the College and ensuring the key priorities are reflected in the Devolved Councils Operational Plans, which underpin the college’s Strategic Plan 2013-17.

UK RCGP Faculties

Each of these Faculties is managed by its 'parent' region, of which there are five (within the UK), select the relevant region below for details of the Faculties within it.

RCGP Members and Associates are automatically allocated to one of the Faculties based on their personal home post code.

RCGP International

Our vision is of a world where excellent person centred care in family medicine is at the heart of healthcare.

In 2011 the RCGP adopted a 10 Year International Strategy which illustrates our ambition to increase the quality of primary care education and delivery globally.

We advocate the need to recognise family medicine as a medical specialism, promoting its values and its central role in supporting an inter-professional approach to achieving universal health coverage.
