Submit your session ideas for the RCGP Annual Conference 2018

You can now submit your ideas for sessions at the RCGP Annual Conference in Glasgow, with four new streams and an expanded clinical CPD stream.

The new streams are Quality Improvement, Discovering General Practice, New Models of Care Across the UK, and General Practice Communities.

The conference takes place at the SEC Glasgow from 4-6 October 2018, following the highly successful Liverpool event in 2017 at which 96% of delegates said they had achieved their goals.

More than 1,600 GPs are expected to attend for more than 80 hours of sessions, including inspirational speakers, all the latest primary care research and practical CPD of the highest quality.

Submit your session proposal here by 8 January 2018

The concurrent learning sessions will be organised within ten main streams, as detailed below:
