Normal Service Resumed

Our apologies to anyone who tried to access the Cameron Fund website last week. There were serious problems that causes the server to fail, but thankfully it's all back and running ok now. 

Interested in finding your ikigai?

On Wednesday 12 July, Londonwide LMCs will be holding a one-day Career Transition workshop for senior GPs, aimed at those thinking about retiring from general practice, as well of those who may wish to use their skills in a different setting. 

You will learn that the Japenese do not have a word for retirement, instead the word 'ikigai' means the reason you wake up in the morning. It is thought that those with ikigai live longer and healthier lives!

Giving us a run for the money

We'd like to say a big thank you to both Dr Gwyn Roberts and Dr Iain Morrison for raising money on behalf of the Cameron Fund by running local marathons recently, in Wales and Scotland, and of course all those who sponsored them. Dr Roberts raised just over £750 and Dr Morrison over £850.

If you are thinking you may like to support the Cameron Fund by organising or taking part in an event please contact us.

47th AGM held in Edinburgh

The Cameron Fund's Annual General Meeting was recently held the LMC Conference 2017, at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre on Thursday 18 May 2017 at 12.50pm.  

The Fund was also an exhibitor at the two-day event and we were delighted to have so many Members, regular LMC contacts and some new faces visit us.

Good Luck Iain!

Dr Iain Morrison, Lothian LMC Medical Secretary and GP Partner at Newbattle Medical Practice will be running in the Edinburgh Marathon on Sunday 28 May.

Iain wants to bring awareness to the vital support the Fund can offer to GPs and their dependent families following the death of his friend and fellow GP two years and his concerns about his widow and children.

Any money he raises will be use to help GPs. Please sponsor him today

Well done and thanks for your valiant efforts

Congratulations to Dr Gwyn Roberts who completed his first half-marathon in 2hrs 18mins, despite running on a leg injury.  He may have been outrun by a Minnie Mouse and a Donald Trump lookalike but he's our hero, having raised over £800 for the Cameron Fund!  

If you wanted to help him reach his target of £1,500 please go to https://cafdonate.cafonline.org/6227#/DonationDetails

Medical Charities' Portal now LIVE!

The Cameron Fund has been working with four other Medical Charities - BMA Charities, the Royal Medical Benevolent Fund, the Royal Medical Foundation and the Society for the Assitance of Medical Families - to launch a new 'Portal' site to highlight the financial support out there for Doctors and assist them in finding out which of the charities may be able to offer the help they need and signpost them to those charities.

Show your support for the Medical Women's Federation Centenary

You may be aware that March is National Woman's History Month, and as mentioned previously 2017 is the Medical Women's Federation's Centenary Year.

Improvements made to the GP Returner Scheme

You may be aware that last November NHS England and Health Education England announced a series of improvements to the GP Induction & Refresher Scheme, which included more financial and practical support for GPs with help towards their costs and fees.  Also every GP Returner would also have access to a dedicated account manager to guide them through the process and changes to hopefully make the that process much simpler and quicker.

Dr Gwyn's Great Welsh Run

On Sunday 7 May Dr Gwyn Roberts will be running in the Great Welsh Half Marathon to raise funds and bring awareness to the Cameron Fund.

Please sponsor Gwyn with a donation today!
