The College membership is paid for by Fellows with an annual subscription for the calendar year for 1 January to 31 December each year.
Foundation for Surgery and Donations
The Foundation for Surgery actively supports innovative surgical research, aid projects in underprivileged communities, skills transfer and education programs. Donations help to facilitate all of these activities.
The Patient and Carer Network (PCN) at the RCP consists of patients, carers and members of the public from across the UK, with a wide range of backgrounds, who help us to put patients at the centre of everything we do. The PCN currently has over 60 members, and the lay chair is Elisabeth Davies.
PCN members join for 3 years, providing their skills, knowledge and experience to the RCP via a range of activities including:
- membership on committees
- projects and working parties
- providing comments on consultation documents
- taking part in invited service reviews.
Members also act as representatives and ambassadors, attending high-profile stakeholder, parliamentary and press events
