The #PhysicianCensus provides the three Royal Colleges of Physicians 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.
- The medical workforce BC (Before COVID-19): the 2019 UK consultant census
- What the RCP is doing to represent the needs of the NHS workforce
Every year the Royal College of Physicians of London, Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh and Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow conducts a consultant census with the aim of providing robust data on the state of the physician workforce in the UK. These census data help us plan for the future and is more important than ever, considering the effects of COVID-19 on the NHS.
