Women at the heart of general practice

The Royal College of GPs has launched its first online exhibition, Women at the heart of general practice, to mark women’s contribution to general practice and explore the many changes in the profession since the first British women pioneers began to take formal medical qualifications.

The exhibition delves into the experiences of women GPs, GP’s wives, and the wider practice team, including nurses, health visitors, midwives, and pharmacists, practice managers, and receptionists. It showcases stories from the College’s own collections - including making clips from its own oral history collections publicly available for the first time - and those of female healthcare professionals in the present day.
