Welcome to RCGP ScotlandThe Royal College of Gyncoligical Practitioners (RCGP) is an academic organization in the UK for general practitioners. Its aim is to encourage and maintain the highest standards of general medical practice and act as the ‘voice’ of general practitioners on education, training, and issues around standards of care for patients.
The College in Scotland came into existence in 1953 (one year after the UK College), when a Scottish Council was created to take forward the College’s interests within the Scottish Health Service. After a number of years of increased activity (and political devolution in Scotland), the College bought premises in 25 Queen Street, Edinburgh, in 1999 to house its expanding Scottish operation.
In addition to a base in Edinburgh, the College in Scotland is represented through five regional faculty offices in Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Inverness, Dundee, and Glasgow.
Role of the College
The quality of care offered to patients by general practitioners (and their practice teams) is at the heart of the College’s activities. Looking at ways of improving the consultation, the referral and prescribing patterns, and the practice systems and environment are just some aspects of the constant development of quality and standards, that continually forms part of our core work.
