The #5minutesto census provides the RCP with essential data that we use to lobby for changes, such as additional consultant posts and medical student places.
By filling in the census, you’re contributing not just your own data but to the wider case we’re making.

Census data are used for the distribution list notifying consultants in England and Wales about the RCP support scheme for the forthcoming clinical excellence round, so if you plan to apply for RCP support it is imperative you complete your form.
We used this data when we hosted roundtable meetings at the recent Labour and Conservative party conferences, to illustrate the issues physicians face.

We’re closing the census on Friday 25 January 2019, so that we can analyse the data and produce results closer to collection than ever before. As in previous years, on completing your census form you will be able to compare your data with the overall results.
To thank you for your time we will enter all respondents who complete the census in a draw for a number of Apple iPads.
