General practice is changing.  The profession is currently in crisis; there are insufficient GPs, the needs and wants of the new generation of GPs are different from the older generation, and the mounting financial challenges are driving experienced GPs away. This, coupled with a changing NHS landscape including new models of care, the rise of STPs and a requirement for 7 day working, is determining a new future for general practice.  But what will that future look like? How exactly will the changes to general practice take place?

The aim of this conference is to find out. Specifically, we will be exploring:

  • How the model of general practice is already changing

  • The future impact of new roles and technology on general practice

  • Whether operating at scale, or in new models of care represents the future of general practice

  • What the route map over the next 10 years is likely to be for general practice

Why this event?

This event will be unlike anything you’ve attended before. Why? Because we’ve drawn together some of the most highly-regarded and progressive thinkers in general practice; leading-edge practitioners who are helping to shape the future. This is your unique opportunity to interact in a protected space with the people and new ideas influencing that future. Can you afford to miss it?

Who is this event aimed at?

If you are working in, or with an organization where you are dependent on a healthy future for general practice (whether it’s in a practice, in a super-practice, a CCG, a federation or any of the new models of care) then this event is aimed squarely at you. If you want to understand this future and how we can get there, then please join us on March 15th.
