Clinical Advisers

The Clinical Advisers Programme allows GPs to use their knowledge and expertise to influence clinical policy and practice through contributing to the development of clinical guidelines and quality standards. The opportunities are diverse and flexible, which can range from contributing to individual consultations, to year-long commitments developing new guidelines 

Participation is open to all practicing GPs with a minimum of three years’ experience and to non-practicing GPs within three years of retirement. Qualified GPs with less than three years’ experience in practice with other relevant clinical or academic experience will also be considered.

Clinical Advisers are invited to get involved with projects within their areas of expertise and interest. The success of this programme relies on participation, and while there is no set obligation, it is implicit in your registration that you will actively participate. 

GPs participating in the programme may:
  • Submit written comments on draft clinical guidelines and quality standards out for consultation
  • Attend events on behalf of the RCGP, such as one off scoping workshops
  • Have the opportunity to become part of guideline development committee
  • Support other work within the Clinical Innovation and Research Centre (CIRC) and across the RCGP

The Clinical Adviser is an unpaid role with the RCGP, although specific projects may offer expenses for involvement.
