Great doctors, great care sets out the College's four main objectives for the next three years. It also defines 12 'values', applicable to College members and employees, that will shape how we go about achieving these goals.

Four objectives

The College has identified four objectives that explain its purpose and what it is aiming to achieve over the next three years:

  1. Shape the future of General Practice
  2. Ensure GP education meets the changing needs of UK primary care
  3. Grow and support a strong, engaged membership
  4. Be the voice of the GP (influence)

Vision and values

The College has also identified 12 values, which can be summarised in four 'core' values:

  • Excellence
  • Teamwork
  • Leadership
  • Care

Commenting on the plan, RCGP Chair, Professor Helen Stokes-Lampard, said: "I am immensely proud to be Chair of this College, representing and supporting over 52,000 hardworking and dedicated family doctors in delivering quality care to patients.

"General practice is the foundation of the NHS. Our service is revered worldwide. We aim to keep it that way and to continue to improve and innovate.

"I'm confident that with our new strategic plan enabling us to focus our work, the College will be able to provide greater support for general practice and patient care across the UK and internationally."
