This conference will examine policy and funding priorities for general practice in light of the ongoing disruption stemming from the pandemic.


Delegates will also discuss wider issues around GP wellbeing, patient access, and service integration.


Stakeholders and policymakers will also assess progress made in delivering on the ambitions outlined in the NHS Long Term Plan as well as the utilisation and impact of the Winter Access Fund, which aims to increase capacity within general practice for urgent same-day care, tackle areas of inefficiency, and build transparency and accountability.


We are pleased to be able to include keynote sessions with: Dr Michael Dixon, National Clinical Lead, Social Prescribing, NHS England; and Co-Chair, Social Prescribing Network and Chairman, College of Medicine; and Professor James Kingsland, Primary Care Physician; Independent Healthcare Advisor; and Clinical Professor, School of Medicine, University of Central Lancashire.


Overall, the agenda will bring out latest thinking on priorities and key issues moving forward, including:


  • integration - implementing reforms within the Health and Care Bill and the role of primary care
  • workforce - recruitment and retention, the role of locum and other support staff, supporting mental health and wellbeing, and tackling burnout
  • primary care networks - progress in development and their role in improving local health outcomes
  • innovation and infrastructure - taking forward innovation from the pandemic and how the estate can support innovative working, tackle inefficiencies, and improve patient access going forward
  • personalised care - opportunities and challenges, the role of community services, and ways to improve the delivery of patient-centred care

The discussion is bringing together stakeholders with key policy officials who are due to attend from the DHSC; DWP; and the OHID.
