RCGP Annual Conference - Day 3 highlights

Publication date: 26 October 2019

On the final day of the RCGP's Annual Conference in Liverpool, RCGP Scotland Chair, Dr Carey Lunan, will compere a debate between Professor Mike Holmes and Professor Clare Gerada on whether the future of general practice lies in the partnership model.

Former RCGP President and GP communications expert, Dr Roger Neighbour, will speak on 'Zen and the art of leadership' – and current RCGP President, Mayur Lakhani, and RCGP Chair-Elect, Martin Marshall will also address delegates.

Other sessions today include:

Mental health in older people

As our population ages, it is crucial to ensure that older people's mental health not only attains parity with physical health diagnostics and care, but parity with other age groups. This session explores diagnostic, monitoring and medication management techniques in older people with mental health conditions.

Improving GP access for vulnerable people

This session looks at how GP practices can become accessible to patients from marginalised groups. It will outline the effects of poor access on patient health, how to identify and remove barriers, and manage challenging behaviours in a safe manner.

Art and wellbeing

An interactive workshop that explores how creative processes can be used to achieve greater wellbeing for patients, and how this idea can be incorporated into primary care.
