Dr Victoria Tzortziou Brown, RCGP London Chair
The RCGP London Committee is a collaboration between the three RCGP London Faculties: North and West London, North East London and South London Faculties, representing one voice for the capital’s RCGP members.
The Committee is made up of representatives from all the London Faculty Boards, encompassing GPs from across the career spectrum with varied special interests. The collaboration ensures that the services offered by the individual Faculties do not overlap and efforts are not duplicated. It also initiates a number of joint ventures.
RCGP London Initiatives
The London Journal of Primary Care is an international, peer-reviewed, pub-Med cited Journal and the official publication of RCGP London. The Journal, edited by Professor Paul Thomas and a team of experts from across the field of Primary Care, publishes a range of articles including case studies, editorials, multidisciplinary research collaborations and evaluated system improvement projects.
By giving a voice to London’s GPs, the Journal aims to demonstrate ways to tackle old or difficult problems in new ways and to excite conversations amongst pioneering primary care specialists – all to inform grass root developments. The Journal also publishes regular London Landscape articles – reflective pieces that make an ideal platform from which appraisees can publish their work.
The editorial team offers a unique mentoring service to authors to help nurture articles from concept to publication, regardless of the author’s prior writing experience.
