RGPAS welcomes new members, and membership is only £20 per annum.  Lots of innovation is happening in Scottish rural practice and we’re keen to share ideas, improve access for students & trainees, and ensure that rural GPs have an effective voice in Scotland.


RGPAS is a solid network of like-minded GPs and we are always aiming to consolidate and build upon this network.
Plus, membership is only £20 per annum!
Priority conference tickets

Priority booking and notification for our annual conference. In 2016 our conference was a sell-out and we are hoping that 2017 will attract a similar level of interest.

Email chatline

Our JISC-hosted email chatline is the backbone to receiving updates and joining in discussion about issues relevant to rural practice.In 2017 this is likely to include issues related to the new GP contract, Brexit and opportunities for CPD development, amongst many others.

Free vacancy advertising

RGPAS members can advertise GP vacancies on the website. This is run on a 'goodwill' basis but offers excellent access to the email, twitter and web networks.

Shape the future of rural practice

As well as voting rights for RGPAS decisions, you will become more involved and informed about the wider opportunities and advice available for rural practice work.
