The RMBF provides support for doctors and their families through all stages of their career and beyond. Our help ranges from financial assistance in the form of grants to a telephone befriending scheme for those who may be isolated and in need of support.
The majority of our Board and our volunteers come from a medical background. This means that as an organisation we understand the unique pressures facing doctors on a day to day basis.
The RMBF relies on voluntary donations. The money we raise to support doctors and their families comes from fellow doctors and their families. Without the help of our generous donors we could not continue to provide vital support to the medical profession.
