South East Scotland Region Information for GPs

Welcome to the South East Scotland Region page. This region includes Edinburgh, the Lothians, the Borders and South Fife. It is fortunate to have a medical and surgical college, a number of universities and a thriving community of recently qualified GPs.

The links to the right give you access to most of your information you may need.

CPD and other events

The South East Scotland RCGP Faculty page includes information about local events and also contact details for faculty members. The faculty administrator is Fiona Paterson. A First 5 group was recently started to organise education and social events. Please join our Facebook group. 

Many new GPs take part in Practice Based Small Group Learning (PBSGL) groups as part of their CPD activity. Joining a group is a great way to meet other local GPs and the modules cover a wide range of clinical and management topics. 

The Lothian Association of Sessional GPs (LASGP) group provides education and support for locum and sessional GPs in the area.

See also West Scotland and East Scotland pages for other resources and events nearby.
