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.

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  

North East London Faculty Board meetings take place four times per year. Upcoming meetings are: 

  • Tuesday 18 September 2018 at 5:30 pm at Education Centre, Mile End Hospital, London E1 4DG
  • Tuesday 20 November 2018 at 7;30 pm (venue to be confirmed)
  • Faculty AGM and Dinner: Thursday 29 November 2018 at 6:30 pm, RCGP, 30 Euston Square, London NW1 2FB 

We look forward to seeing you at a meeting soon.

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. This year the Faculty is inviting applications for a Bursary of £300 as a contribution towards costs of a place at the RCGP Annual Conference in Glasgow, 4-6 October 2018. Applicants must be able to submit a report and present their experiences to the Faculty at their AGM on 29 November 2018. The Conference is an opportunity to gain an insight into the issues facing general practice, hearing about examples of excellent practice, as well as, it being an excellent networking opportunity meeting peers and other stakeholders.

In order to enter you must be a member of the NE London Faculty in order to apply for the bursary. You are required to submit (in Word format) an outline of how attending the Conference has benefited you by helping introduce ways in which general practice can be improved, and highlighting your main learning experiences from your attendance at the event. This should be no more than 600 words and address the following:

  • The educational value of attending the RCGP Annual Conference – perhaps selecting a proposed activity
  • The value of the experience that is expected to be gained from the proposed activity

Please include your contact details, membership number, practice and home address at the beginning of your application.

You can email submissions to:

Topic for discussion: "A Celebration of Collaboration. NHS 70 years in North Central and East London"

Date and venue:  Tuesday 30 October 2018, 6:30 pm at RCGP, 30 Euston Square, London NW1 2FB

Our Marcus Clinical Lecture is an annual multi-disciplinary event which brings together Patients, GPs, Specialists, Community and other services and the public located in the North Central and East London area. These events have been  patient centred rather than disease focused and are named after Dr Abraham Marcus  who initiated  this holistic approach to learning in the 1960s. 

Our speakers for the evening are Dr Jonathon Tomlinson (GP Hackney); Dr Patricia Wilkie (Chair, National Association Patient Participation) and Dr Alistair Chesser (Chief Medical Officer, Barts Health NHS Trust).

The evening consists of two parts:

Part 1:  A Celebration of Collaboration with the speakers providing highlights of key moments of collaboration from the past, present and hopes for the future in NHS General Practice in North Central and North East London [the footprint of the Faculty].

Followed by Questions & Answers after the panel presentation

Part 2:  Honouring the Invisible Staff of General Practice with nominees collecting their award for service to the NHS from the CCG Chair and the CCG Lay Partner Representative. There will be an optional display of photos of nominees and summary of their work outside the room.
