The three-day conference at Gregynog Hall, near Newtown, attracted 150 delegates from across England and Wales.
Dr Huw Evans, one of the organisers from the Montgomeryshire Medical Society, a group of GPs who formed to provide their own brand of rural postgraduate education, said: ‘There is ongoing concern about the bureaucratic incursions into general practice that are pervading all areas of our work.
‘We have seen massive increases in management services in the health service rather than clinical staff and there is great dissatisfaction amongst doctors with the current situation.
‘Most doctors feel they are working longer hours, seeing more patients and incorporating an increasing list of primary care services with relatively little acknowledgement.'
