Vision and values
The College has also identified 12 values, which can be summarised in four ‘core’ values:
Commenting on the plan, RCGP Chair, Professor Helen Stokes-Lampard, said: “I am immensely proud to be Chair of this College, representing and supporting over 52,000 hardworking and dedicated family doctors in delivering quality care to patients.
“General practice is the foundation of the NHS. Our service is revered worldwide. We aim to keep it that way and to continue to improve and innovate.
“I’m confident that with our new strategic plan enabling us to focus our work, the College will be able to provide greater support for general practice and patient care across the UK and internationally.”
