2014 was another positive year for the RCP. We continued to grow our membership, activities and income – with 6% more fellows, 14% more members, 11% more registered trainees and 26% more CPD registrants than 2 years ago.
We enhanced our services to members and fellows and we continued to develop our infrastructure and facilities.
The RCP’s consolidated total income in 2014 was £40.7 million – £2.7 million higher than in the previous year. The main factors influencing this were:
- increases in the number of candidates sitting the MRCP(UK) and specialist examinations, particularly overseas
- increased educational activities
- continued success in obtaining and retaining grant funding
- income from external bookings being higher than expected due to several profitable external bookings.
Our activities for the year are described in our downloadable report below.
