The event will take place on 11 and 12 February 2021 under the theme A Fresh Approach to General Practice.

It will feature over 30 concurrent sessions, with focuses on clinical updates, GP health and wellbeing, GP careers, medical education and hot topics.

  • Professor Martin Marshall, RCGP chair
  • Prerana Issar, NHS chief people officer  
  • Dr Mark Britnell, global chairman & senior partner, healthcare, government & infrastructure at KPMG
