South East Scotland

A warm welcome from South 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 Edinburgh, East and West Lothian, the Scottish Borders and south Fife, supporting 1200 RCGP Members, Fellows and AiTs. 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, including supporting local medical students and our trainees as well as a number awards to support and recognise innovation and development.
