The Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP)

The Royal College of General Practitioners is the professional membership organisation for GPs in the United Kingdom. Their mission is to promote, cultivate, and sustain the highest standards of general medical practise. The RCGP assists general practitioners at all stages of their careers, from medical students thinking about medical practice to training, years of practice and retirement. As a practising GP, RCGP members must demonstrate relevant CPD for each area of practice across the five-year verification cycle. The RCGP adheres to the General Medical Council's CPD guidelines. The RGCP mandates members to complete a minimum of 50 CPD credits per year, covering a wide range of general practice topics throughout a 5-year period. This should amount to 250 over the course of five years.
