Influencing through our policy and campaigning work

Do you want to use your voice to improve the future of general practice?

You can be involved in our campaigning locally and nationally by signing up to our supporter list. Every year thousands of our supporters, made up of GPs, patients and other health professionals across the UK share our campaigns, and advocate for general practice.

We listen to what our members feel needs to change and improve and represent those views to government, in Parliament and to bodies like the NHS and Public Health England. Our recent campaigns have secured an additional £4.5 billion in funding for general practice and kickstarted the recruitment of a thousand social prescribers in England. You can be a part of this too.
