Who We Are

We are the GPs' own charity.

We are the youngest of the national medical charities and since our creation, in 1970, we have distributed over £4.4 million in grants and loans and have assisted over 1,200 beneficiaries.

We are here to support the 59,000 GPs and their dependants, as well as retired GPs and doctors who have completed a programme of specialty training for general practice. Most general practitioners will never need to contact us, but for those doctors who encounter financial difficulties, our support can be crucial.

Our constitution allows us to have up to twenty trustees, each serving for three year period. Trustees are drawn from all over the United Kingdom to ensure adequate geographical representation.
