What is EveryDoctor?
EveryDoctor is a non-profit campaigning organisation run by doctors, for doctors. Our community of 1,600 members and forum of over 26,000 doctors support one another to build our political movement together.
We aren’t affiliated with any party and work with politicians from across the political spectrum and various organisations to further the issues which matter to our members.
What do we campaign on?
We’ve made an impact over the last few years with grassroots campaigning and we’re now building a long-term sustainable movement to hold our leaders to account.
Nothing speaks to this more than our work to #ProtectNHSworkers in the COVID-19 crisis, where we advocate for doctor and patient safety through our movement of dedicated doctors, the press, a cross-party coalition of 100 MPs and by harnessing the groundswell of public support for the NHS at this time.
Prior to COVID-19, we were also running campaigns to expose unsafe practice in hospitals and widespread burn out in the medical profession, fix the broken GP pensions scheme, raise concerns with the Babylon scheme, and challenge the NHS surcharge for doctors on visas.
How do we do it?
As a non-profit, donations go towards powering our campaigns. We don't accept any funding from the Government so all of our work is only possible through regular contributions from EveryDoctor members. Everything we work on — from the petitions we build, the videos we create and our advocacy with MPs — is funded by our membership, who help us strategise and expose issues in the NHS.
I have a campaign idea - how do I suggest it?
We'd love to hear your ideas! Any EveryDoctor member can submit campaign suggestions via the email address firstname.lastname@example.org. Not a member?
How do I become a member?
We want to open up EveryDoctor membership to as many doctors as possible so we offer a range of membership tiers, so you decide what works best for you.
Do you offer concession membership for students?
We want to support members who are students or not currently working, which is why we offer a concession membership at £2 per month. We ask that you let us know via the sign-up form when you’ll be back at work, and we will move you up to the next membership tier once this date has passed (unless we hear from you that you need a concession membership extension).
Note: any concession members who signed up before 14th October 2020 will be unaffected by these changes. We will contact you directly once you have returned to work.
I’m a member but I haven’t received updates from EveryDoctor recently
All members should automatically receive a welcome email inviting you to follow us on Twitter and join our members-only forum on Facebook — please check your spam folder if you haven’t seen it. Otherwise, email email@example.com and we can look into this for you.
Are my donations tax deductible?
Donations to EveryDoctor are not tax-deductible as we are a campaigning organisation and not a registered charity. This is an important measure to ensure that EveryDoctor’s campaign and advocacy work remains independent from the Government who might seek to influence our work.
What is the difference between EveryDoctor’s members-only forum and the private forum The Political Mess (TPM)?
The Political Mess (‘TPM’) is the largest Facebook forum for UK doctors welcoming all grades and specialities, with over 25,000 members.
TPM is run by EveryDoctor and we use it to promote our work and campaigns, poll TPM members to better understand the priorities of UK doctors and gather case studies to expose injustices in the healthcare system.
What happens if I cancel my membership?
If you choose to cancel your membership for any reason, we do not provide a back-dated refund of your donations.
