Professor Veronica Wilkie, Midland Faculty

Welcome to the latest issue of Midland Faculty's blog, bringing you all the latest news and developments from your Faculty.


We hold Faculty board meetings four times a year.  We are always delighted to welcome observers, particularly medical students and foundation doctors.   Please contact midland@rcgp.org.uk for further information.

Future meeting dates are:

  • 4th meeting 2019/20 – Thursday 6 February 2020, Hallmark Strathallan Hotel, Birmingham

  • AGM and 1st Meeting 2020/21 – Thursday 25 June 2020, Edgbaston Golf Club, Birmingham

  • 2nd meeting 2020/21 – Thursday 3 September 2020, Hallmark Strathallan Hotel, Birmingham

  • 3rd meeting 2020/21 – Thursday 5 November 2020, Hallmark Strathallan Hotel, Birmingham

  • 4th meeting 2020/21 - TBC


We are pleased to have Dr Zirva Khan, Dr Alex Lee and Dr Deepika Yadav on board as our College Tutors.  Alex covers the central Midlands area, Deepika the south and Zirva the north.  They will represent Midland Faculty at AGPEC and other HEE meetings as well as take forward the education programme for the region.


Our regular programme of GP update courses continues to be ever popular.  Going forwards we have a full and varied programme of courses and events including PLUSbaby, a GP recruitment evening and a basic life support course.  We also continue to hold our joint injection and minor surgery course and the highly acclaimed Roger Neighbour and Robin Simpson CSA courses.   We also continue to develop our wellbeing programme with Reducing Stress in the Consultation and The Art of Increasing Resilience and Cultivating Wellbeing in General Practice taking place in 2020.  We are also looking to run a programme of events for later career and retired members including Your Ticket to a Happy Retirement in February 2020.


Please keep checking our website for updates on our courses and events


The faculty is keen to encourage fellowship to recognise the efforts of our members. We want fellowship to reward both 'grassroots' members who concentrate on providing excellent patient care in their practices and members who have made significant contributions in other areas for example, in education, service development and research.  Fellowship nominations are welcome for consideration by the Faculty Fellowship Committee - please submit applications online. For further information, please visit the Fellowship page or contact Barbara Ingram at bingram@rcgp.org.uk
