Dr Mark AttahSummer is officially here and it’s been a very busy few months for the RCGP East Anglia Faculty. 

First, I would like to congratulate Professor Amanda Howe as the next President of the RCGP! We are delighted as a Faculty not just because she has been a valuable member of the faculty but also because her active involvement locally, nationally and internationally over the years will be of great benefit in her role as College president.

We are also pleased that Dr Lucy Henshall from our Faculty will take up post as one of the nationally elected members of the RCGP Council. There are many strings to Lucy's bow, including her role as East of England Clinical Lead for the GP Health Service. 

This year's East Anglia annual symposium was held on 19 June 2019 at Ipswich. It was a huge success with over 150 attendees including 110 East of England AiT's and First5's, 20 learned speakers, 12 energetic parallel sessions, 4 inspiring plenaries over 3 floors in one beautiful waterfront building in Suffolk. I am truly grateful to our International Lead, Prof. Kev Hopayian and the Ipswich organising committee for putting up such a dynamic and engaging programme. The James Dundas Simpson Lecture was given by Prof. Deborah Swinglehurst who gave such a brilliant lecture on putting the patient back in patient centred care.

The Faculty will be having our AGM on 11 September 2019 in the Bedford Lodge, Newmarket. All members are welcome to attend. Please put the date in your diary and contact e.anglia@rcgp.org.uk for more details.

I am happy to announce that the East Anglia Faculty has approved an Annual Bursary worth £500 to be awarded to an AiT in the region to attend the Annual RCGP National conference this year taking place in Liverpool. Details of how to apply will be sent to all training schemes shortly. 

Keep up to date with the huge range of free clinical, non clinical, social and holistic events the Faculty are running.

Have a great summer and I hope to see many of you at the AGM in September!

Dr Mark Attah, Chair
