About Us

The Cameron Fund is the GPs' own charity.
It is the only medical benevolent fund that
solely supports general practitioners and their dependents. We provide support to GPs and their families in times of financial need, whether through ill-health, disability, death or loss of employment. We help those who are already suffering from financial hardship and those
who are facing it.

Find out more in our About Us section.

Applying for Help

Applications are welcome from, or on behalf
of, present or former GPs, their families, and dependents.

We also welcome referrals from Local Medical Committees and other organisations or individuals who may know of someone who might benefit from support from us.

Find out more in our Applying for Help section.

"I've been a Trustee for about 10 years, and in that time we've been able to help many GPs
and their dependents in real financial need, often through no fault of their own"

Looking after yourself, as well as the patient

From September - November 2015, Londonwide LMCs piloted a series of PHP Reflective Practice Masterclasses. Aimed to help build resilience, each GP took part in a session of their choice; Behavioual Change; Reflection; Mindfulness or Organisational Change.  With a total attendance of 98 (some were repeat attendees returning for a different session), 62% rated the workshops as Excellent or Good.
