The Cameron Fund Christmas Appeal

Throughout the year the Cameron Fund has been able to help numerous GPs and their families who have found themselves in financial crisis – primarily through loss of earnings. To continue this vital support the Fund needs your help. With approximately 50% of its income coming from LMCs and individual GPs, the Fund is dependent on the generosity of the profession. Unfortunately, over the past two years the Fund has seen income drop, while the financial support the Fund has given to GPs and their family dependents has increased.

Come and find us if you're in Liverpool this week

Once again, the Cameron Fund will be having a stand at the annual RCGP Annual Primary Care Conference and Exhibition. This year it's being held at the ACC Liverpool on Thursday and Friday (12-13 October). You can find us on stand E30.

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
