Mr Hunt's speech will take place on the first day of the event, which runs from 12-14 October 2017, followed by a joint audience Q&A session with RCGP Chair Professor Helen Stokes-Lampard.
He will join a list of inspirational keynote speakers from the world of medicine and beyond, alongside more than 60 learning sessions over the 2.5 days of the conference.
This year’s theme is Forward Together, aiming to meet the developing needs of GPs across the UK, as boundaries blur between practices, between disciplines and professions, between doctors and patients, and between primary and secondary care.
GPs working together for the NHS
The conference will emphasise the GP role in 'Leading UK primary care to the next level', managing the drive for quality improvement and the transformation into larger, more complex organisations to deliver the changes needed in the NHS.
NHS England's director of primary care, London GP Dr Arvind Madan, will also speak at the conference as part of the NHS Question Time session on the main stage on Friday morning.
