East Scotland Faculty

Welcome from East Scotland Faculty

A warm welcome from East Scotland Faculty. We are a group of volunteer RCGP members who provide local networking, education and support for members in the area. We cover Dundee; Angus; Perthshire and North Fife, supporting over 500 RCGP members and their peers. As a Faculty, we have a particular interest in supporting our members’ CPD and professional development and provide a range of education courses, tailored to local needs from AiTs through to retired members.  

Get involved

We meet four times per year, in February, June, September and November to progress our local engagement activities and discuss issues pertinent to our members, which are then fed back to the College Council. All local members are very welcome to attend Board meetings and participate in these discussions – we are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help us develop our local engagement programme. Our next meeting will be held on Wednesday 12 June, Doubletree by Hilton, Dundee.

Upcoming events

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