White Rose

Welcome from White Rose Faculty

Welcome to the RCGP White Rose Faculty. We are a collaboration between three faculties:

And provide additional education, training and support to GPs in the area and enable special interests and specific, specialist skills to be shared across the region for the benefit of all the Yorkshire members.

Get involved

Our Faculty Board meets four times per year in February, June, September and November and is made up of GP volunteers from across the three Yorkshire Faculties. 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. If you have any regional issues which you would like the White Rose Faculty Board to consider, please do get in touch.

Upcoming events

RCGP White Rose deliver courses on AKT Preparation, Women's Health and other specialist clinical events. The wide appeal and benefit of these courses makes them ideal to offer on a regional basis.

A key element of the Vibrant Faculties initiative centres around encouraging Faculty collaboration to drive forward effective regional educational and networking programmes.

Taking up this important work in England’s north since 2009 are the Humber and the Ridings, Sheffield and Yorkshire faculties, who collaborate as the White Rose initiative to address local GP and patient needs that are mirrored across the entire Yorkshire region.

In addition to the ongoing services the three faculties provide within their local areas, the White Rose collaboration combines skills and expertise to develop educational programmes that suit needs on a regional level. Each faculty contributes to the decision making process.

The regional office supports the collaboration by providing input into project development, acting as a link between the three faculties and supporting opportunities to deliver effective and targeted services across the region.

Details of forthcoming White Rose meetings and educational courses can be viewed through the courses and events box on the right-hand side of this page. For more details, please contact White Rose Administrator, Louise Roocroft.

RCGP White Rose Initiatives

Leading First: Dr Amar Rughani, Yorkshire and Humber’s former Associate Postgraduate Dean for Curriculum and Leadership,  teamed up with two enthusiastic GP registrars to develop a Leading First course which was very successful and well received. The aim of the course was to engage and support frontline First5 GPs. The course helped young doctors develop the confidence and skills to facilitate change and improve general practice for their patients and colleagues.

The programme was offered to all First5s in Yorkshire and run as a series of four sessions across the year. Topics such as the process of change, how to engage your staff, and leading with resilience were covered. Dr Rughani will run the sessions alongside Dr Lydia Mawer – a bright, forward thinking leader – and Dr Samantha Wong, Yorkshire and the Humber’s very first GP leadership fellow. In addition to the Leading First team, the workshops were facilitated by leaders and educators from across the region, who shared their wealth of knowledge.

The CSA and AKT preparation courses have run for several years now in the White Rose region and have helped establish an excellent reputation for supporting GP trainees throughout their training. Both courses are run and rotate around the three faculties. White Rose has established a dedicated team of assessors who are called upon to support and deliver these courses. This team, with support from the College, offers advice to help guide trainees through their final exams. The White Rose CSA is RCGP Accredited.
