Volunteers' Week, celebrating volunteering for all

NCVO Volunteers' Week 2018 logoDuring this year's Volunteers' Week we celebrated the fantastic contribution of our volunteers and the diverse ways they make a difference in enhancing general practice as a profession and supporting great doctors, providing great care to patients.

Volunteering for all

Group of participants in Malawi

At the RCGP, the professional membership body for General Practitioners, our volunteers are a huge range of people making a contribution to the profession and patient care.

They are our GP members shaping the future of general practice as school speakers, providing a voice for the profession through our policy and campaigning work, promoting professional development and education outcomes for GPs through mentoring, or engaging with our members as local faculty and regional Board members.

They are also our other incredible supporters like patients and other members of GP teams, offering their time to the College in groups that contribute to the work of our members.

Each of our volunteers and their involvement is unique and here are some of the ways they have got involved:
