The RCGP is delighted to offer new gifts in the official RCGP Tartan. A limited quantity of ties and scarves have been produced for the holidays.
This tartan is linked to the history of general practice in the UK. The registered tartan is based on the sett of the Scott Clan, and linked to the accomplishments of Professor Richard Scott. Professor Scott was the Scottish Member of the RCGP’s Steering Group and the Honorary Secretary of Scottish Council from 1953 - 1969. In 1963, he became the first Professor of General Practice in the world when he was appointed to the chair at Edinburgh University. To commemorate both Professor Scott’s contributions and the role of the College in general practice, the then Chair of Scottish Council, Dr Bill Reith, FRCGP commissioned and gifted the tartan to RCGP in 2002.
This tartan has been fully recorded in, and is unique to, the Scottish Tartans World Register. It is designed by Kinloch Anderson of Edinburgh, one of the world’s leading specialists in tartan since 1868. Kinloch Anderson has received many accolades including Royal Warrants of Appointments as Tailors and Kiltmakers to HM The Queen, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh and HRH The Prince of Wales. There has been a long tradition of supplying The Royal Family, beginning in 1903.
100% silk, and backed with a luxurious black velvet.
