Clinical Advisers

The Clinical Advisers programme allows GPs with generalist knowledge or expertise/interest in a specific clinical area to influence clinical guidelines, quality standards and a variety of other consultations. The opportunities are diverse and can range from reviewing individual updates, to year-long commitments developing new guidelines.

Participation is open to all practicing GPs with a minimum of three years’ experience, also to non-practicing GPs within three years of retirement.

The success of this programme relies on participation, and while there is no set obligation, it is implicit in your registration that you will actively participate. The Clinical Adviser is an unpaid role with the RCGP, although specific projects may offer expenses or recompense for involvement.

GPs participating in the programme may:

  • Provide a primary care representation by joining a Guideline Development Group; attending one off scoping workshops; submitting written comments on clinical consultations, etc.
  • Provide development and review support for RCGP educational activities
  • Support the work of our Clinical Champions
  • Potential to formally represent the RCGP in a chosen area of clinical expertise as required by the honorary secretary

RCGP endorsed NICE Quality Standards

The main purpose of the Clinical Advisers Programme is to ensure Primary Care is represented in NICE guidelines, quality standard and other clinical consultations. NICE quality standards are a concise set of prioritised statements designed to drive measurable quality improvements within a particular area of health or care.

The RCGP has worked with NICE during the consultation period for the development of several quality standards, and provided comments which have helped form the scope of the standards. The following quality standards have recently been published and we are pleased to co-badge them with NICE and other contributing organisations.
