Humber and the Ridings Faculty

Welcome from Humber and the Ridings Faculty

Welcome to the Humber and the Ridings Faculty. We support over 850 Members, Fellows, Associates and Associates in Training in the Humber and the Ridings area which covers the North and East Riding of Yorkshire, North Lincolnshire, North East Lincolnshire and the Vale of York. We're a small Faculty with big talent, and were winners of the inaugural 2017 Small Faculties Vibrant Faculties Award in recognition of our great relationship with our retired members. We pride ourselves on offering quality, tailored CPD and professional training courses to our members and the GP workforce in our area. We're big on recognition too, and each year we host an annual dinner and 'Celebrating General Practice' event to reward the skills and efforts of our members, whatever the stage of their career.

Get involved

Our Faculty Board meets four times per year in February, June, September and November and is made up of GP volunteers including representatives from Hull GP Society, Hull and York Medical School (HYMS), First5 and AiT committees, as well as representation for Fellows and a regional Education Lead. The purpose of Faculty Board meetings is to discuss and progress our local engagement activities and to highlight any issues which are pertinent to our members. Our local issues and opinions are then fed back to College Council. Faculty Board meetings are held in various locations across Humber and the Ridings for the benefit of our members. We're always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to get involved and help shape our Faculty Board. Our next board meeting will be in February 2021. Please email if you're interested in attending or finding out more about how you can get involved. 

Upcoming events

We run many education courses and social/networking events throughout the year. Many of these contribute to CPD and professional development.

Getting involved

We rely on members to play an active role locally, promoting the College 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.

Faculty News

We have held several events recently including our fantastic Annual Dinner at the prestigious Grand Hotel in York which was also where we held our first ever cooking evening for local GPs. We will also held our inaugural Fellowship & You evening in York at Hotel du Vin where current and future Fellows enjoyed an evening of networking and our Provost, Dan Roper, talked to us about his experiences of Fellowship over a delicious 3 course meal. All this and the RCGP Annual Conference was in Liverpool this year which saw 2 days of networking, learning and engaging with GPs from all over the world. During this conference the first ever Inspire Awards were held and our own Hon. Treasurer, Thomas Patel-Campbell, was awarded with the well-deserved “First5 of The Year” for his work in our Faculty. Congratulations to him from us all!

If you'd like to come along to one of our events or courses that are run free or at a discounted rate for members then you can find more information here. We'd love to see you!

Faculty Initiatives

Faculty Fellowship

The Faculty actively encourages its members of five years plus standing to consider putting themselves or colleagues forward for Fellowship. The Provost, Dr Dan Roper, leads the Faculty Fellowship Committee and can offer advice and support. Please contact the Faculty Administrator for further information.

Annual Dinner

We host an annual dinner each year which is combined with an awards ceremony. The Humber and the Ridings Faculty Annual Dinner is a great way for the Faculty and its members to come together with colleagues and students from across the region to celebrate and showcase local talent in primary care. This year, the Faculty Annual Dinner attracted 120 of the Faculty membership and saw the RCGP Vice Chair of Membership Prof. Michael Holmes attending as the after dinner speaker. If you are interested in attending the 2020 event, please email the Faculty who will contact you when registration is open.

Awards and Prizes

The Faculty is pleased to offer the following annual awards:

The Bibby/Innes Award

This award is open to Humber and the Ridings Faculty AiTs in their second or third year of specialty training. 

The Eric Clow Award

This award is open to HYMS students in Years 1 - 3. This year (2019) we presented two HYMS students, Jannah Holmes and Sorcha Lynch, the Eric Clow Award for their project on the combined pill.

The Simon Wilkinson Award

This award is open to HYMS students in Years 4 or 5. This year (2019) we presented a HYMS student, Jemima Cohen, the Simon Wilkinson Award for her thought provoking essay on the rationality of fearing our own deaths as GPs.

Outstanding GP Award

This award seeks to recognise the most dedicated of individuals from the Humber & The Ridings membership who has shown a real contribution to general practice. This year (2019) it was awarded to Dr Raghu Raghunath who our judges felt was a key influencer and supporter in and of our region. 

Please note - awards will be placed on hold until we are back to normal working patterns. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding these awards.

White Rose

In addition to the services we provide to members locally, we have joined with Sheffield and Yorkshire faculties to consider an education programme that meets the needs of members across our county.
