President's listening exercise

Professor Mayur Lakhani

The RCGP is the UK's largest Medical Royal College. General practice as a profession and the health service we work in are changing rapidly. We need to provide GPs with the best support we possibly can to help you care for yourselves, as well as your patients.

One of my manifesto commitments when I was elected College President was to hold a 'listening exercise' to give frontline GPs an opportunity to talk directly to the College about what you think we can do to better meet your needs and expectations.

* Black GPs are making amazing contributions to medicine and patient care but in my view, this is not recognised or celebrated enough, and I want to change this.
I want to hear from Black GPs working in the UK in order to better understand your needs and encourage opportunities for participation, inclusion and leadership opportunities in general practice.  

Please join me for a Presidents listening event in London on the 31 July 2019 from 4 – 6.30 pm at:

30 Euston Square
NW1 2 FB

This event is supported by MANSAG, GDDA UK, CAMDOC UK and ACMA. 

Light refreshments and drinks will be served after the event.

I am keen to hear from current members of the College, previous members of the College, and Black GPs who have never been members.

I will then share your views and recommendations with RCGP Chair Professor Helen Stokes-Lampard and College Council later this year, along with a clear action plan based on your feedback.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope to see you in London on the 31 July 2019.
