Welcome to the new RCGP blog, where you'll find updates on a range of our activities with posts from RCGP officers, members, staff and guest bloggers.

Professional development and developing new skills

Dr Laurence Dorman, RCGPNI Chair focuses on learning and the importance of continuous learning in general practice. He also reflects on the role of IT in general practice and shares an opportunity to get involved in the RCGPNI Executive Team.

What are the responsibilities of a civilised society?

And what role should we as doctors play in advocating and caring for those with greatest need, particularly at a time when the COVID crisis has shone a light on health inequalities? I’m proud of the work that GPs do in supporting and advocating for those with greatest need.

A virtual tour of Wales

Improving the membership offer and increasing the number of members and fellows is a priority of the College and will be discussed further in Faculty Boards in November, says Dr Rob Morgan, Vice Chair of RCGP Wales.

RCGP Scotland’s Deputy Chair for Policy Dr Alasdair Forbes explores the work of the College in Scotland in improving workforce levels within general practice.

Dr Laurence Dorman, RCGPNI Chair, summarises the latest RCGP NI Council meeting, including reflections on diversity and inclusion challenges, as well as the impact of health inequalities on patients in NI.
