RCP500 Charter

In celebration of our 500-year anniversary in September 2018, the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) has devised a modern charter of our members' professional values.

Sign the charter

So that our fellows and members can sign the RCP500 Charter in person, RCP registrar Dr Andrew Goddard is cycling 2,018 miles between as many acute NHS trusts as possible around England and Wales for the RCP Charter Cycle.

Details about where the charter is visiting next will be announced soon. You are also warmly invited to sign the charter online.
