RCGP Regional Ambassadors

Group photograph of some of the RCGP Ambassadors July 2015

The College’s Regional Ambassadors are passionately making the case for investment in general practice in their areas, to ensure that all practices and patients benefit from the increased funding and support promised in the GP Forward View.

Working with RCGP Faculties, they are promoting the values of general practice and working to ensure there is a strong voice for primary care in their local health communities.

Early work they are undertaking includes engaging with Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) Footprints and NHS England Local Area Teams, to ensure their plans are fully aligned to the GP Forward View.
