Extensive fringe programme for RCGP Annual Conference 2016

This year's vibrant selection of fringe sessions at the RCGP Annual Conference offers something for every delegate, whatever your professional interests or career stage.

As part of the fringe programme, you could join practical sessions on inhaler techniques or basic life support, debate the everyday ethics of general practice, and hear about opportunities for working abroad.

In patient-focused sessions you could learn about collaborative care, the dangers of fuel poverty, and how to make your practice more friendly to adolescents.

Virtual reality consultations

New technology is also on the agenda in a debate on access to healthcare records and a demonstration of the opportunities that virtual reality consultations can bring to GP training.

You can get involved with helping to build vibrant RCGP faculties, meet the chairs of the devolved nation councils, and find out how to run effective local campaigns on issues important to your practice.

The work of medical students will also be showcased and opportunities for young GPs as RCGP clinical fellows, as well as an important session on how to support colleagues in distress.

All of this on top of the plenary sessions and 45 concurrent sessions covering the whole range of general practice.
