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.
