RCGP Annual Conference to lead the way on GP collaboration

The RCGP Annual Conference 2017 has chosen the theme of 'Forward Together' to inspire GPs to collaborate on tackling the challenges facing the NHS.

More than 1,600 GPs are expected to attend the event in Liverpool, which is now in its tenth year, from 12-14 October 2017.

The Forward Together theme aims 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.

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.

A dedicated stream of sessions, running across the full 2.5 days of the conference, will address how general practice can meet the challenges across all four nations, and make this a time of opportunity for the profession, while addressing the inevitable concerns.
