Mersey Blog

11 June 2018

Welcome to the Mersey Faculty's blog where you can read all our latest news. 

The Faculty started 2018 looking forward to an already brimming programme of courses and events.

Taking note from members' input, the Mersey Faculty is pleased to be bringing back the popular joint injections course as well as other new and reimagined opportunities for learning, development and networking.

At our last Faculty Board we paid tribute to Dr Erik Toke who passed away in 2017 and was a much admired and respected member of his community and our Faculty.

Recently, the board discussed a range of issues including e-consultations and genomics as well as forwarding suggestions for the wider college 2018-19 policy and campaigns drive.

The board welcomed a new member in Dr Jonathan Griffiths as well as co-opted members Dr Susannah Ball and Dr Dornubari Lebari. In addition, we welcome Dr Bennet Quinn as the board's new Honorary Secretary.

In the latter months of 2017 the Faculty took part in the Liverpool City Region Health Skills Show for secondary school students from across the Merseyside region.

This and other education events marks an increase in the Faculty's engagement with schools, sixth-forms and universities as part of a wider college drive to encourage the next generation to consider a career in general practice.

There are plenty of opportunities to get involved so please do get in touch if you think you can volunteer some of your time to inspire the next generation of GPs, please contact the Faculty Office.

Just a reminder if you're not already following us on social media, please go on our Facebook and Twitter pages and like and share our posts. Please do check back each month for more updates on your Mersey Faculty, news from wider college and information about up and coming events.

With best wishes
