The BJGP is the official journal of The Royal College of General of Practitioners and as such is received by all members of the College and personal subscribers.
RCGP members regularly rate the BJGP as the most valued and most accessed member benefit as it has a vital role in helping doctors keep up to date with medical developments, new drugs, treatments and medications.
GPs provide primary and continuing medical care for patients in the community. They can run specialist clinics within a practice for patients with specific conditions, and increasingly work as part of a team alongside other healthcare professionals, including community health doctors, to discuss care options for patients and their families and help patients to take responsibility for their own health. GPs who are partners in a practice are also responsible for the running of the practice, which involves a range of administrative activities, such as employing staff, managing contracts and working within strict budgets.
GPs play a key role in commissioning healthcare, organising preventive medical programmes for patients as well as promoting health education. They are also required to meet government targets, manage resources to meet those targets and keep abreast of developments in pharmaceutical products.
The BJGP also has an impressive and growing number of non RCGP members who regularly subscribe.
