The RCP is deeply committed to improving access to clinical research and supporting the integration of research into everyday care. The RCP has produced a strategy to develop, deliver and drive research in the NHS; seeking to address the barriers to equality of access.
Climate change is the biggest global threat to health and the need to act has never been clearer. From respiratory diseases to access to clean water, global warming is negatively affecting the health of people around the world.
The RCP seeks to be a facilitator in research collaboration to provide support for physicians and the sector. You can find out more about the work we do through collaborations and how to get involved below.
The RCP offers support for physicians by helping deliver a system that enables research. We do this by supporting job plans, sharing experiences of other physicians, and through schemes such as the flexible portfolio training initative.
Peer support can help staff cope with the stress that comes from their work. New guidance from the RCP and the Royal College of Psychiatrists (RCPsych) sets out the values, principles and practice of peer support, with an infographic that can be printed out and displayed locally.
The Royal College of Physicians (RCP) is working with partners to develop the support it offers to physicians who are active, engaged or interested in research – from sharing examples of good practice to offering practical resources.
