Health minister Alex Neil will deliver a keynote speech to GPs at the conference, in Glasgow on Friday.
GPC Scotland chairman Dr Alan McDevitt told GP: ‘What GPs will want to hear from Alex Neil is that he recognises the workload problems practices face, and that he will move away from micromanaging the work we do with patients.’
Dr McDevitt added that assurances on stability of funding for general practice were also high on the list of priorities for GPs.
GP leaders at the conference are set to warn that patient care will be put at risk unless there is a ‘major increase in resources’ for primary care as work moves increasingly out of hospitals.
