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.

Celebrating Sir James Cameron's greatest achievements

Drinks ReceptionThank you to everyone who came along to the Cameron Fund's Drinks Reception, held on 6 October during this year's RCGP Conference. The charity's Council of Management wanted to celebrate the achievements of founder Sir James Cameron, as 2016 is the 50th anniversary of the current GP Contract.  This had been negoiated by a team led by Sir James and its implementation, which went on to greatly improve the standards of modern General Practice.
