What do we mean by a supporter or a volunteer?

As part of your membership we offer you incredible opportunities to get closer to the work of RCGP, our team of staff and members whilst helping you develop personally and professionally as you support great doctors, providing great care. Whilst our supporter opportunities are voluntary (unpaid) we will support you with reasonable and agreed out of pocket expenses and a meaningful participation experience.

Do you reimburse expenses?

We will cover agreed and reasonable out-of-pocket expenses when you are supporting RCGP.

Who can get involved?

We aim for our base of members supporting and participating to reflect the diversity of the communities in which we operate and the members we support. We therefore look to reach our widest possible membership. If you are a current member with the right skills and qualities for an opportunity you like we encourage you to get involved.

How long do I need to get involved for?

We have many flexible and tailored membership participation opportunities to fit around GPs' different commitments. We have one-off or short-term opportunities as well as on-going opportunities over a number of years. Our committee and group based participation usually requires meeting on a quarterly basis.

Where can I get involved?

As a UK wide and international organisation we have opportunities to get involved in your local area, nationally and globally too.

What do I get out of it?

You get to make even more of your membership by joining our community. Network and connect with your peers, develop personally and professionally and know you are supporting great doctors, providing great care – three incredible reasons to get involved.
