In 2019 the RCGP developed a new capability framework based on five capabilities – each of which incorporate some of the previous 13 capabilities (or competencies):

  1. Knowing Yourself and relating to others: fitness to practice, communication and consultation, maintaining and ethical approach.
  2. Applying skills and clinical knowledge: Data gathering and interpretation, clinical examination and procedural skills, making a diagnosis and clinical management
  3. Managing Complex and long-term care: managing medical complexity and working with colleagues and in teams.
  4. Working well in organisation and systems of care: Improving performance, learning and teaching and organisation management and leadership.
  5. Caring for the whole person and the wider community: Practising holistically and Community orientation.

We have mapped these Capabilities to the structured teaching programmes for each of the ST1, ST2 and ST3 grades.
