A warm welcome from South West Wales Faculty. We are a group of volunteer RCGP members who provide local networking, education, and support for members in the area. We cover Swansea in the south, up to Aberystwyth in the north and Builth Wells in the east, supporting over 665 members, Fellows, Associates, and Associates in Training.

Next board meeting and AGM

Board meeting dates for 2022:

  • Wednesday 8 June 2022 | 7pm to 9pm | via Zoom
  • Thursday 13 September 2022 | 7pm to 9pm | via Zoom
  • Tuesday 1 November 2022 | 7pm to 9.30pm | via Zoom (This meeting includes the AGM)  

The Faculty Board is made up of local GP volunteers who provide local networking, education, and support for members in the area. We meet four times per year to progress local engagement activities and discuss issues pertinent to 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. 

Local training and development


March 2022

Fellowship is the highest level of membership of the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) and is a distinction to which all our members can aspire. We award Fellowship as a mark of achievement, excellence and recognition for one’s contribution to general practice, and medicine more broadly. We believe achieving Fellowship is within the reach of all our members, regardless of their career path or destination. A new online Fellowship application process has recently been launched and full details of applying for Fellowship can be found at RCGP Fellowship. If you are unsure about any part of Fellowship or want to know more about the process, contact us.
