Policy and campaigns

The RCGP is the voice of general practice. Through our policy and campaigning we promote the excellent work of GPs and the crucial role of general practice in the NHS.

We have a track record of success in achieving real change for GPs and their patients across the UK. Our flagship ‘Put patients first: Back general practice’ campaign has secured significant pledges including:

  • £1bn infrastructure fund in England
  • £123.5m for primary care in Wales
  • £15m for general practice Northern Ireland
  • £50m primary care fund in Scotland
  • 5,000 extra GPs in England by 2020, as well as a further 5,000 primary care professionals

Our ground-breaking policy work highlights new issues and solutions placing the College at the forefront of the debate around general practice.  Through our high profile media and parliamentary work, we ensure that the views of our members are heard loud and clear by politicians, policy makers and the public.

On behalf of our 52,000 members we will keep on fighting for the future of general practice and safe patient care.
