Join the RCGP, your professional home
When you’re welcomed as part of the RCGP family you’ll receive support and guidance to help you shape your life in general practice.
Why should I become an RCGP member?
As your professional home, you’ll also form close bonds with other GPs who understand the challenges you face through your career – and want to celebrate your achievements.
You'll also have access to a wide range of benefits.
If you have had RCGP membership in the past, you will need to restart your membership.
Medical students can join for free. As you qualify and become established, the cost of membership changes according to your circumstances. If you want to take a career break but still maintain a connection to colleagues and learning, there are lower rates. Life membership allows you to stay involved, so you’ll always benefit from membership that meets your needs.
