Royal College of Physicians
The RCP’s core mission is to drive improvements in health and healthcare through advocacy, education and research.
We are an independent patient centred and clinically led organisation, that drives improvement in the diagnosis of disease, the care of individual patients and the health of the whole population both in the UK and across the globe.
Our members are at the heart of the health service, working in hospitals across the UK. We draw on their unique knowledge and expertise to develop evidence-based policy in key areas of healthcare.
The RCP champions medical professionalism and leadership, promotes person-centred care and drives improvements in clinical practice. We regularly communicate and meet with government, stakeholders and international organisations such as the EU, to embed quality improvement across all health policy.
