John Cox. Faculty Chairman and ProvostWelcome to the Republic of Ireland Faculty's blog where you can read all our latest news.

The RCGP ROI annual Winter Meeting and Dinner took place in December 2017 at the prestigious Stephen's Green Hibernian Club, 9 St. Stephen's Green, Dublin.

We welcomed the 3 Sheppard Memorial Prize winners and the Slaney Prize Winner to the podium to present their winning essays.

Huge congratulations to the Sheppard Prize winners; Dr Rory Stewart, Dr Katie McElroy and Conor Kennedy. We were particularly delighted to award the Slaney Prize award to our very own Board member (as well as Representative RCGP Council and Faculty Fellowship Lead) Dr Diarmuid Quinlan.

Diarmuid gave us a phenomenal insight to the use of text messaging in General Practice. This was followed by guest speaker Dr William Behan who spoke on "Healthcare and funding General Practice."

An informative and very pleasant evening was had by all. At our last Faculty Board meeting, the Faculty voted on the RCGP's campaign and policy priorities and the Faculty budget plan for 2018-2019 was approved.

We had some valuable discussions at our Faculty Board meeting and I would like to thank you for your contributions and input.

Another important Faculty date is the AGM which will be held in the Convention Centre, Dublin on 26 May 2018.

Something else I wish to alert you all to - The College recently issued guidance for GP practices, courtesy of Dr Matt Hoghton, Medical Director of the College's Clinical Innovation and Research Centre, and Dr Manpreet Pujara from our Health Informatics Group.

I hope you found this useful. If you need a copy of the guidance, please contact me for further information.

With best wishes

Dr John Cox
Chair and Provost, Republic of Ireland
