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 646 members, 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.

Board meeting dates for 2021:

  • Tuesday 16 November 2021 | 7pm to 9.30pm | via Zoom (This meeting includes the AGM)

Forthcoming events

We provide education courses and networking events throughout the region and many of these events contribute to CPD and professional development.

The Royal College of GPs has decided to temporarily postpone all face to face events, but we are pleased to be able to offer a range of online events detailed below

Faculty Initiatives

Fellowship

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. A Fellow of the RCGP exemplifies its motto 'cum scientia caritas'. Being awarded fellowship denotes the esteem in which a Member is held by their peers and the RCGP.

We believe achieving fellowship is within the reach of all our Members, regardless of their career path or destination. A new off-line 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 we have a Faculty Fellowship Committee who have been through the process themselves and can answer any questions you may have. Contact the Fellowship Committee.

Mentoring

Connect, support, grow:

RCGP Mentoring offers an array of complimentary resources to help you navigate the mentoring process, supporting you in your role as a mentee or mentor and ensuring that your mentoring relationships are enjoyable and productive.

The Faculty is pleased to offer a Student, AiT and First5 the opportunity to win a 2 day ticket to attend the RCGP Annual Conference talking place in Liverpool on the 14 - 15 October 2021. This years winners are Jenny Hein, Isobel Joy Fadzean and Ziad Shaban.
