South West Wales Faculty

Welcome from South West Wales Faculty

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 657members, Fellows, Associates and Associates in Training. The Faculty has a particular interest in supporting our members' CPD and professional development and provide a range of education courses tailored to local needs.

Get involved

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. If you would like to find out more about the Faculty and your local GP network or attend one of our forthcoming Board Meetings we would be delighted to hear from you.

  • Tuesday 15 June 2021 | 19:00 - 21:00 | via Zoom
