North Wales Faculty

Welcome from the North Wales Faculty

We aim to provide the benefits of RCGP membership to colleagues closer to home. You are probably reading this because you already work in North Wales in which case you are also most likely to be enjoying the beautiful beaches and fantastic countryside that it has to offer!

The North Wales Faculty covers an area stretching from Barmouth to Flint and is one of the smallest Faculties with just over 380 members, Fellows and Associates in training. The Faculty Board is made up of local GP volunteers who provide local networking, education and support for members in the area - we are always open to ideas and welcome new members onto the Faculty Board. The Faculty Board discuss matters of importance to RCGP and feed these back to the College Council. Remember this is your Faculty, so please do get in touch if there are ways we can serve you better.

Our Board meetings are held four times a 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. We rely on our members to play an active role locally, promoting the College's aims and objectives.

Get involved

We meet four times per year to progress our local engagement activities and discuss issues pertinent to our members, which are then fed back to Welsh Council and College Council. 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 and to raise awareness of the demographic issues and needs of GPs and patients alike. If you would like to find out more about the Faculty and your local GP network we would be delighted to hear from you.

Faculty Events

The Royal College of GPs has decided to temporarily postpone all events . The situation is fast-changing and in light of most recent government guidance, we have taken this decision to enable GPs to concentrate on the delivery of patient care during a period in which the NHS and its staff will be under increasing pressure. For all postponed events, delegates already registered will be transferred to an alternative date; should this date prove unsuitable, a full refund will be processed for any payment made.

We will continue to focus on delivering support, tools and guidance to members and all GPs as we deal with the impact of COVID-19. You can find that guidance on the RCGP website.

Forthcoming Events:

We are always striving to provide events and activities that are of benefit to members locally. Your views are important to us, so if you have any ideas or suggestions for future initiatives, or feedback on the services you have received from us, please contact us.

Details of further forthcoming North Wales Faculty meetings, social events and educational courses can be accessed via the Upcoming Events box on the right with more being added soon.
