RCGP Annual Conference - Day 2 highlights

Publication date: 25 October 2019

On the second day of the RCGP Annual Primary Care Conference in Liverpool, our NHS 'Question Time' panel will debate some of the major issues in healthcare.

Professor Helen Stokes-Lampard, RCGP Chair; Dr Krishna Kasaraneni, Workforce Lead for the GP Committee of the BMA; and Dr Rosie Benneyworth, Chief Inspector of General Practice will be on the panel, hosted by RCGP Chair-Elect Professor Martin Marshall.

Also appearing on the panel are Dr Austin O'Carroll, Dublin GP and pioneer of GP training in deprived areas; and Dr Jodie Blackadder-Weinstein, Chair of the RCGP First5 Committee.

Professor Sir Michael Marmot, Director of the Institute of Health Equity (UCL Department of Epidemiology & Public Health) will also deliver the John Hunt lecture, discussing 'Social Justice, Health Equity and the Social Determinants of Health'.

Other sessions today will explore:

Serious violence and exploitation in Liverpool

What do young people say about their lives and the effect of living with violence? This session from the Liverpool Youth Violence Intervention programme will present steps taken to address this growing problem, including a scheme that has based a youth worker in a city A&E department. 

Social media and mental health

The session will explore the impact of social media on both patients' and doctors' mental health, reviewing the existing evidence though case studies, and experiences from the panel and audience.

Primary care Networks

 PCNs are the latest structural development in primary care in England, and two sessions today will examine how their implementation is progressing since the NHS Long-Term Plan and GP contract were published - and how the networks are working within the wider health and care landscape. 

Daffodil Standards

The RCGP and Marie Curie have developed the Daffodil Standards - an evidence-based QI tool for general practice to improve the quality of care for people with advanced serious illness and end of life care needs. The session will demonstrate practical ways to offer step-by-step improvements for patient care near or at the end of life.

Short papers are also being presented today on topics including the outcomes of an integrated approach to epilepsy in primary care; delivering care to communities affected by FGM; and how UK general practice can learn from Austria and Germany.
