No one knows you like your GP – Practice resources

The RACGP’s ongoing community awareness campaign highlights the value of general practice in our community, reinforcing the breadth and depth of GPs’ interactions with patients and the reasons no one knows Australian patients like their GP knows them.

RACGP members are invited to use campaign materials and join us in highlighting the value of general practice, and the importance of education and learning gained through membership and association with the RACGP.

Campaign materials available to RACGP members include posters, social media cover images, website tiles and downloadable, captioned videos to play in your practice.

The materials include:

  • digital copies of the TV adverts – to be played on practice TV screens
  • practice posters – for your waiting area
  • social media cover images – for your personal and professional Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts
  • digital adverts – for your practice website
  • the RACGP Oath of Fellowship – to frame and display in your consultation room
  • an RACGP Fellow and RACGP member logo – to include on your practice website, personal stationery or business cards.

Visit the RACGP website to download supporting materials.
