With an agenda focussed directly on Scotland and the forthcoming GP contract (April 2018), the seminar is the perfect opportunity to discuss priorities for primary care in Scotland.
It is expected 140 delegates will attend, with representation from key stakeholder groups and suppliers. An added bonus, the event is CPD certified. Delegates will also receive a transcript of the proceedings 12 working days after the event.
Areas for discussion include:
• Policy priorities and key issues for primary care in Scotland – investment, workforce and meeting patients’ needs
• Priorities for integration and primary care – including involvement in the decision-making processes of integration authorities and best use of current and future investment
• Encouraging engagement with the wider health and social care workforce, in particular the third sector
• Implementing the new GP contract, including its potential impact on workloads and quality of care – and addressing wider challenges facing general practice
• Learning from the Govan SHIP project;
• Overcoming barriers to the delivery of primary care in rural locations; and
• Enhancing community support services.
Keynote addresses from Nicky Connor, Associate Director, Nursing, NHS Fife; Shona Robison MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport, The Scottish Government; Professor John Gillies, Deputy Director, Scottish School of Primary Care; Dr Carey Lunan, Chair, RCGP Scotland and many more.
Vision will be on hand to showcase our latest developments and discuss how our solutions are developed to ease the pressure and increase quality of care within primary care.
