Benefits of RCGP membership

Our 54,000 members are the College – working for you and with you is at the heart of everything we do. RCGP membership benefits you, your team, your patients and general practice - now and in the future.

No two members are the same, and so our membership isn’t one-size-fits-all. We’ve developed a range of tailored support and services to suit you – whether you’re a student, a GP trainee, a locum, GP partner, based in an urban or rural location, or internationally.

We want to make sure membership continues to provide you with the right support.


Whether classroom based, workshops, practical or online, our learning support offers different formats to meet your needs and develop your skillset.

RCGP publishes authoritative medical publications for GPs and primary health care professionals including journals, clinical guidance and reports.

We are at the forefront of the debate, ensuring that the views of our members are heard loud and clear by politicians, policy makers and the public on issues relating to standards in general practice.

We have a growing collection of online resources and free events that can help you cope with stress or focus on mindfulness.

We award fellowship in recognition of a significant contribution to medicine, and general practice in particular.

Whether you're looking to buy a new car, book a weekend away, get a deal on financial services, or get discounts on everyday items such as clothing and groceries.
