This year’s event has moved to London Olympia to accommodate its continual growth. Taking place on 28 June, it’s the perfect platform for GPs and other healthcare professionals to update their learning and gain CPD hours, network, and share knowledge and best practice tips with their peers.
With six streams of free clinical learning: dermatology, women’s health, diabetes & cardiovascular disease, mental health, respiratory and a mixed programme of clinical updates, this year’s programme will also give attendees the opportunity to find out more about the latest guidelines and debate key issues.
The line up of speakers includes:
- Dermatology – Dr George Moncrieff, discussing both eczema and psoriasis; Dr Sara Ritchie, looking at skin infections; and Dr Liz Ogden on unusual rashes
- Women’s Health – Dr Caroline Cooper, expert in contraception; Dr Julie Oliver, talking about sexual health and STIs; and psychiatrist Dr Lucinda Donaldson discussing perinatal mental health
- Diabetes & Cardiovascular Disease – Dr Raj Thakkar, talking about both syncope, and the latest thinking in heart failure management; Dr Matt Fay, discussing the early diagnosis and management of angina; and Professor Gerry Rayman, on diabetic foot conditions
- Mental Health – chaired by Dr Peter Ilves, who will also speak on GP mental health and wellbeing; Dr Nadia Llanwarne will discuss anxiety and depression; and Dr Peter Bagshaw, talking about eating disorders
- Respiratory – Dr Azhar Saleem reviews the diagnosis and management of asthma; Gay Sutherland updates on smoking cessation; and Professor Kyle Pattinson shares his research into breathlessness
- Clinical Updates – this varied programme includes Dr Danny Murphy asking ‘Is this inflammatory arthritis?’; Dr Catherine Millington-Sanders on end-of-life care; and Dr Raj Bajwa looking at complicated primary care cases.
Attendees will also have a chance to visit the MIMS Learning stand for our appraisal and revalidation surgery with GP appraiser Dr Ravi Ramanathan.
