Call for papers: submit your session ideas for the RCGP Annual Conference

You can now submit your ideas for sessions at the RCGP Annual Conference in Liverpool, taking place from 12-14 October 2017.

More than 1,600 GPs are expected to attend the event, now in its tenth year, which is renowned for attracting inspirational speakers as well as offering practical CPD of the highest quality.

This year’s theme of Forward Together has been chosen to meet the developing needs of GPs across the UK, as practices merge and group together and professional boundaries blur.

The concurrent learning sessions will be organised within ten main streams, including two new streams for this year: Healthcare Technology and Health and Wellbeing.

The concurrent session streams for 2017 are:

Campaigning for General Practice Updates and debate on new and existing government policy and its impact

Career Development Creating and engaging the GPs of the future

Clinical Learning Practical knowledge updates on hot topics in everyday clinical care

Forward Together How we lead primary care to the next level

Health and Wellbeing Lifestyle changes to enhance your personal and professional wellbeing

Healthcare Technology Taking advantage of new technologies to develop innovative patient services

Mental Health Focus In depth practical sessions addressing mental health in the GP consultation

Professional Education Developing educators and encouraging the next generation

Research and Innovation Latest findings and practical implementation of primary care research

Supporting Doctors Helping GPs in the UK and internationally to provide high quality care, meet standards and develop special interests

The Short Papers stream will deliver quickfire presentations of the latest research relevant to primary care. You can submit abstracts for this stream, and enter your posters, from February 2017.

More than 100 suppliers and service providers, covering the breadth of primary care, will also be exhibiting at the event. Find out more about the exhibition and sponsorship.
