The Cameron Fund
The Cameron Fund is the GPs' own charity. It is the only medical benevolent fund that solely supports GPs and their dependents.
The charity provides grants and loans to assist doctors and their families experiencing financial difficulties due to short or long-term illness, relationship breakdown or hardship following the actions of regulatory bodies or former partners.
Interest-free loans may be available towards the expenses encountered during a return to professional work. The charity helps those who are already suffering from financial hardship and those who are facing it.
Anyone who knows of someone experiencing hardship is urged to draw attention to the Cameron Fund’s existence.

Help me, I'm a Doctor - A new portal offering financial support
The main medical charities have produced a website portal that will help doctors in difficulties to find the most suitable charity to apply to. BMA Charities has worked with The Cameron Fund, The Royal Medical Benevolent Fund, The Royal Medical Foundation, and The Society for the Assistance of Medical Families (formerly Widows & Orphans) and the portal has now gone live.
Doctors, or their dependents, and medical students, can answer a very short questionnaire to find the best charity to help them. They can then link to that charity for more information about eligibility and application. There is also information about other organisations that can offer help.
