RCGP in the media

The College is in the media almost daily, providing information for GP patients and representing the interests of the profession. RCGP Chair Martin Marshall works with College officers and GPs around the country to ensure that the pressures on general practice are featured on TV and radio programmes, as well as in national and local print media.

College responds to new draft guidelines on chronic pain

The College’s response to the recently published NICE draft guidelines on chronic pain has received substantial national media coverage.

The response was featured on the front page of The Daily Express with a comment piece from College Chair Martin Marshall, as well as The Times, BBC News and Pulse.

Martin was also interviewed on LBC Radio (around 01:25:00), BBC Radio 5 Live (around 1:12:00), and Times Radio (around 01:55:00) on Tuesday on the topic, discussing the need for GPs to have greater access to alternative therapies that they can refer patients to.

Demand for routine GP appointments back to near normal levels

A Press Association report features comments from Martin Marshall on how demand for routine GP appointments is now nearing normal levels and the critical role of general practice in aiding communities’ recovery from the COVID-19 virus.

The article has since been featured in around 100 regional and online outlets, for example in the Lancaster Guardian.
