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 NEL 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 10 September 2019, 6:00 pm (venue to be confirmed).
