This statement of strategy builds upon the previous strategy (2008-2013) and the ICGP document produced in 1989, entitled 'Future of General Practice in Ireland', otherwise known as 'The Blue Book'.

The purpose of this statement of strategy is to express the view of the members of the Irish College of General Practitioners on:
•The future structure and role of the ICGP in support of members of the College and in the continued development of high quality general practice.
•The priorities for the ICGP in its core services of training, education, research, quality and standards, and representation.

This document is closely informed by results from a survey of a representative sample of ICGP members, involving six ICGP faculties (Cork, Galway, North Dublin, Kildare, Carlow and Kilkenny), with responses from 384 members. Results were collated, reflected back to the participating faculties, and considered by the ICGP Council (September 2014) and ICGP Board (February 2015).
