RCGP statement on GP appraisals - 20 November 2020


Transgender Care

This paper provides an overview of the key issues facing gender-questioning and transgender patients, general practice and the broader health system. It establishes the RCGP's position on the role of a GP in providing care to patients experiencing gender dysphoria, the policy principles underpinning this position and recommendations for ensuring these patients receive equal access to the highest standard of care.

Type 1 objections and the National Data Opt Out

Access to high quality data is vital to enable medical research and planning to take place. Wherever possible, patient data should be fully anonymised before it is used for research and planning, to reduce the need for sharing of any confidential or identifiable information and thus to reduce the requirement to seek individual patient consent or use legal routes to access data without consent.


General practice needs technology which enables safe patient care fit for the 21st century, makes the lives of GPs and their teams easier, and does not line the pockets of private investors at the expense of the NHS.
