RCGP leadership strategy

The desired outcomes for the Strategy, which the RCGP plans to implement in collaboration with key partners, are:

  • A clear purpose for Leadership in General Practice, that includes the following abilities:
    • To inspire, develop and support their multi-professional teams, taking account of variations in professions’ working ethics and line management structures
    • Mentor the next generation of GPs
    • Co-mentor and support colleagues in leadership roles
    • Develop and support GPs leading improvements and building capacity across the health and social care system to improve the patient experience
  • A curriculum for Leadership and Management that extends from undergraduate medical training through postgraduate training to the career general practitioner. It should result in skilled GP leaders who can lead the profession in a variety of situations either locally or nationally that develops and implements effective sustainable change that improves the quality of care.

  • An effective collaboration with other organisations involved in leadership development and training, such as the Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management (FMLM), the NHS Leadership Academy, the Kings Fund, NHS Education for Scotland, Health Education England (HEE), and other organisations in the other devolved countries to: 
  • Work with these organisations, to develop a range of accessible Leadership Training tools suitable for, and aligned to, all sections of the Curriculum journey.
  • Develop a communication strategy that enables the RCGP to work with other significant national organisations (including GPC, Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, GMC, HEE, Department of Health, NHS Education for Scotland) to ensure medical leadership is the highest quality and drives development and improvement in the NHS for the benefit of patients and staff.
  • An alignment with the RCGP proposal for a Leadership Training Programme.
