The RCP Charter Cycle will visit the East Midlands on 14–15 September, giving physicians working in hospitals in Derby, Kettering and Leicester the opportunity to sign the RCP's charter of modern-day values, along with delegates at the RCP Update in medicine event in Loughborough.
Produced to celebrate the RCP's 500th anniversary in 2018, the RCP500 Charter highlights the commitments of modern-day physicians to:
- provide the highest standards of patient care
- train, develop and support doctors
- act as leaders
- promote good health and prevention of ill health.
Doctors will be able to sign the charter at these locations:
- Royal Derby Hospital: Thursday 14 September 2017, 8.30–9.30am
- Update in medicine – Loughborough: Thursday 14 September 2017, 11am–5pm
- Kettering General Hospital: Friday 15 September 2017, 9–9.45am
- Leicester Royal Infirmary: Friday 15 September 2017, 12.30–1.30pm.
The RCP Charter Cycle is a 2,018-mile journey between NHS trusts in England and Wales being undertaken by RCP registrar Dr Andrew Goddard. If you would like to cycle with Dr Goddard at any point during his journey, please register your details and stay updated about the route the ride is taking.
Physicians for Africa
As well as bringing the RCP500 Charter to our members and fellows, Dr Goddard is raising awareness of Physicians for Africa – the RCP's fundraising project to improve access to well-trained physicians in east, central and southern Africa.
