North East London Faculty

Welcome from North East London Faculty

We support over 1800 members, Fellows, Associates and Associates in Training in the City of London, the north-eastern parts of inner London and parts of the Thames corridor stretching into South Essex. The area reflects a wide range of socio-economic diversity and inequality from deprived urban to affluent. The area is also ethnically diverse with a mobile population, including refugees and new immigrants. The needs of our doctors mirror those of the population they serve. As a Faculty, we bring together GPs from all backgrounds to share best practice and develop innovative ways to support each other and our local communities.

If you live and/or work in one of the CCGs in this North East London Faculty map [PDF] then as a RCGP member please join our board and be the GP you want to be.

Get involved

We rely on members to play an active role locally, promoting the College's aims and objectives. It is essential to raise and maintain awareness of demographic issues and needs of GPs and patients alike, and develop initiatives to support these. If you would like to find out more about becoming involved with the faculty we would be delighted to hear from you at

Faculty Board meetings

North East London Faculty Board meetings take place four times per year, in June, September, November and February. They take place just before the RCGP's Council meetings. Our next Board meeting is taking place on Tuesday 18 June 2019 at either 5.30 pm or 7.30 pm (depending on whether we have and Flash Learning event). We will confirm the venue very soon.  

Faculty AGM and Dinner

Our Faculty AGM and Dinner is taking place on Tuesday 15 October 2019 at 6.30 pm to 10.15 pm at the RCGP.  We have an invited speaker for the evening. We will publish more details on our website in due course. 

North East London Faculty Lotte Newman Bursary

The Lotte Newman Travel Bursary provides an annual fund to support a GP trainee or newly qualified doctor who is a member of the RCGP's North East London Faculty to attend an educational event either in the UK or abroad. The purpose of this bursary is to promote research in general practice and primary care, and/or to attend a conference of recognised educational value. In 2018 we invited applications for a Bursary of £300 as a contribution towards costs of a place at the RCGP Annual Conference in Glasgow.  We will be offering the Bursary again this year and we will be able to announce the criteria for applications soon.

Celebrating the invisible staff of General Practice 2019

In the autumn of 2018 the RCGP and the North Central and North East London STPs ran an inaugural event to honour retiring practice staff. Due to the success of this event we decided to delever another event this year. It is taking place on the evening of 19 September 2019.   

This event is a collaboration between the North Central and North East London STP teams and the RCGP's North East London Faculty. It is to celebrate any staff member in primary care who has retired, emigrated, died or left to do something else during the period from 1/1/2017 to 18/09/2019. The purpose would be to acknowledge their significant contribution to the NHS.

At the event last October we had a guest speaker and there were 29 nominations for awards. We are presently working with the North East and North Central STP's on planning this year's event.  Once we have more information it will be published on this website in the near future.
