This is what we stand for
Our Election Manifesto
The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow has 15,000 Fellows and Members across Scotland, the UK and internationally. Established in 1599, the College was and remains today, the only Royal College in the UK that brings together physicians, surgeons and other health professionals.
The events of the past year have placed a huge burden on our health service and all those who work in it. While the COVID-19 pandemic continues to generate enormous challenges, we are proud of the vital part our membership has played in providing excellent patient care.
Although the pandemic brought the best out of our NHS and its staff, it has also highlighted and exacerbated the ongoing challenges that we have faced over the past few years.
Together we’re a force for good, determined to deliver positive progress for healthcare professionals. The challenges of working in modern medicine are complex and demanding. These have been made even harder by the COVID-19 pandemic. The profession needs a 21st century College up for the challenges of 21st century medicine.
