Statement from RCGP President Dame Clare Gerada

We are very sorry to hear of the death of Her Majesty The Queen and send our deepest condolences to King Charles and the Royal Family.

The Queen dedicated her life to public service, and she has been the one constant in all our lives. As a GP from the Commonwealth, I, like many others, saw her as our figurehead and we will never forget her.
