Youth over experience

Organisers of the Institute of Rural Doctors conference held in Gregynog, Montgomeryshire this month want to attract younger GPs to the organisation.

The conference provides a forum where rural practitioners can meet to discuss issues affecting their practice and update their clinical skills. Concern was expressed that the age profile of GPs attending the three-day event was rising. Pictured from left to right are GPC negotiator Dr Peter Holden, Gaynor MacLennan from Montgomery Medical Practice, Medical Society chairman Dr Martin Green, medical student Joanna Tandy and Dr Jonathan Jones.
