The RCGP “GP with Extended Role in Lifestyle Medicine” Framework

The RCGP “GP with extended role in Lifestyle Medicine” framework is launched this Friday 12th April 2024.

This collaborative project with the RCGP is a significant milestone in the practice of the discipline of Lifestyle Medicine and for the British Society of Lifestyle Medicine. The framework lays out the discipline, its skills, knowledge and application within primary care.

The BSLM Learning Academy is proud to be listed as one of the major sources of training and quality assurance for the practice of Lifestyle Medicine such that GPs can expertly support people with the 6 pillars of mental wellbeing, healthy relationships, physical activity, healthy eating, sleep and avoidance of harmful substances by using a person-centered approach with behaviour change techniques, social prescribing, health coaching and group consultations.

Many thanks to the working group of GPs with expertise in Lifestyle Medicine including Dr Karen Bollan, Dr Hussain Al-Zubaidi, Dr Rob Lawson, Dr Ellen Fallows, Dr Callum Leese and Dr Sarah Tamplin
