Specialist advice to help develop your practice at the RCGP Annual Conference

This year's RCGP Annual Conference in Harrogate includes a dedicated Practice Development stream to help you take your practice to the next level.

Demand management is now a pressing issue for all practices and will be covered in a session from NHS England on measuring patient flows to improve access and reduce workload.

Advice on developing skill mix and recruiting the right staff is also crucial in the changing NHS, and several sessions will focus on this developing area.

Topics covered include the use of advanced primary care nurses, and the employing of pharmacists, paramedics and physician associates.

A dedicated session on quality improvement for practices will provide guidance and practical techniques, and technology experts will demonstrate how to use risk profiling across practice populations to improve outcomes.

Alongside the Practice Development stream, the Energising Primary Care stream will include sessions on working with patients to co-produce new services and an in-depth look at joining forces to work in federations of practices.
