East Anglia

13 June 2019

Tony PalframanWelcome to the latest issue of your East Anglia Faculty blog, bringing you the latest news and developments from our Faculty and Central College.

It's already June, which means we are almost half way through 2019. You may be wondering how the months have flown so quickly. I guess we have all be busy with various things from setting up Primary Care Networks to our ST3 Trainees taking the CSA exams and of course busy doing the day job and being there for our patients. 

I am pleased to report that after so many years of campaigning, the RCGP has improved funding for faculties. While there is still a long way from what we have hoped for, we are grateful for the increased funding, which means the Faculty can serve you better. 

We have been increasingly working in partnership with a number of organisations to help support you better. We have been supporting Health Education East of England in setting up and running a number of courses including CSA preparation courses. We have also been working with NHS England and Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG in putting up some great programmes. These include:

  • A First 5 event on the 12 June 2019 in Cambridge and on the 3 July 2019 in Peterborough
  • A "Wise 5" event in Cambridge on the 3 July 2019
  • BringBaby professional development update events in Cambridge, Peterborough, Huntingdon and Ipswich throughout the year and our very popular wellbeing event
  • Cooking for Health, taking place at Cambridge Cookery School

All events are free. Please check the Faculty website for booking details as places are filling up very quickly. There are other course and programmes on the website.

We also have our Annual flagship event for the Annual Symposium coming up on the 19 June at Ipswich. Thank you to Kevin and the team for putting up such a great programme. There are still spaces available. It is free for AITs.

We are grateful to our Education Lead Fiona Leckie for her initiative and drive in putting up these programmes and to Keri Platt our events administrator who has worked tirelessly to make them successful.

I also want to let you know that Annemarie Mccarthy our Faculty administrator has had surgery and is currently recovering. We wish her a speedy recovery.

I look forward to seeing most of you at the Annual symposium on the 19 June 2019.

Dr Mark Attah, Chair
Chair, East Anglia Faculty
