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.

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.

It's business as usual...

Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic we have had to close the Fund's office at BMA House. However, we continue to work remotely to provide support to our existing beneficiaries, and are here for any GP (and their dependent family) who find themselves in financial crisis during this extremely difficult time. 
Whether you are a ST1, ST2 or GP Registrar on a recognised GP Training Scheme; work as a salaried or locum GP; are a GP Partner or are now retired - if you are experiencing hardship due to a reduced income and are struggling with debts, please get in touch.
For further information, or to apply for assistance, please email us on: info@cameronfund.org.uk
Please do not use the post at this time. If you have posted an application to us in the last couple of weeks, please contact us to make sure we have received it.
If you are a Member, the BMA can offer you a wide range of support, including their Wellbeing Services on 0330123 1245 (24 hours a day, seven days a week), or email wellbeingsupport@bma.org.uk

Fund welcomes Jill Rowlinson

Jill has recently joined the Fund as our Chief Executive.

She is a Chartered Secretary, who has previously worked as a governance professional and manager in the private and not for profit sector. Most recently she has worked in local government and was previously Town Clerk for Ware Town Council in Hertfordshire. 

In her spare time, Jill plays in brass bands and is also a Trustee and voluntary Company Secretary for a local hospice.

Last year's figures signed and delivered

We're pleased to announce that we have now finalised the 2018 Annual Trustees Report & Financial Statements.

We would like to thank those of you who gave donations and continue to support us year-on-year.   We would never want to be in the situation that we have not got the funds to assist the GPs who are in desperate need of help.
