Our vision

The RCP is a patient-centred and clinically led organisation whose core mission is to improve patient care and reduce illness.

Our vision is for everyone to have the best possible health and healthcare. As the leading body for physicians in the UK and internationally, we work to achieve this by:

  • influencing the way that healthcare is designed and delivered
  • promoting good health and leading the prevention of ill health across communities
  • supporting physicians to fulfil their potential.

Our values

We are committed to taking care, learning and being collaborative. These values drive the way we behave, how we interact with each other, and how we work together to achieve our vision and improve patient care. 

We value taking care

This means we behave respectfully towards people, whatever their role, position, gender or background. It means we act as representatives of the RCP, and take decisions in the interests of the organisation as a whole.

We value learning  

This means we continuously improve through active learning and honest reflection, so that we grow personally and as an organisation, while striving for excellence. We support learning and development opportunities.

We value being collaborative  

This means we work together towards the RCP’s vision in a collaborative and professional way, understanding that individuals bring different strengths and approaches to our work. We value diversity and each other’s contributions.
