The Primary Care Conference: The frontline of the seven day NHS
“The current state of general practice is pushing GPs to their limit and having a serious impact on their physical and mental health.” - Dr Maureen Baker, Chair of the Royal College of General Practitioners
A 2016 study by the mental health charity Mind revealed that 88% of primary care workers find their job stressful. As the largest branch of British medicine, GPs are on the frontline of an NHS struggling to cope with an aging population with increasingly complex care needs. As Jeremy Hunt pushes ahead with plans for a seven day NHS, experts have raised concerns that an already stretched primary care sector will not be able to take the strain. The GP Forward View, published in April 2016, sets out ambitious proposals to boost recruitment, invest in technology and create GP practices that are fit for purpose.
Join us for The Primary Care Conference where leading experts from across the health sector will provide unique insights into the challenges and opportunities posed by NHS reforms and what this means for the future of your practice.
