The Society for Academic Primary Care’s Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) rotates around member institutions annually. The 2024 Conference will be hosted by the Centre for Academic Primary Care (CAPC) at the University of Bristol and will be held in the Wills Memorial Building on 3-5 July.
The Society for Academic Primary Care (SAPC) is the primary organisation championing academic primary care in the UK.
The theme for the conference is ‘Sustainable Primary Care: healthy systems, healthy people’.
The conference is for anyone with an interest in primary care, including:
- primary care researchers across a wide range of disciplines
- primary care practitioners
- people working in primary care teaching
- commissioners and policy makers
- patients and members of the public involved in primary care research.
Over 300 delegates from across the UK and beyond are expected to attend.
The 2024 conference is co-hosted by Dr Rachel Johnson and Dr Alyson Huntley, who said: “We are delighted to be hosting this important academic gathering of the primary care community. SAPC Bristol 2024 offers the opportunity to hear from top speakers, contribute to and discuss our theme of sustainable primary care, network with like-minded people, and enjoy the attractions of Bristol. We look forward to extending a warm welcome to our beautiful city.”
Professor Rupert Payne, co-chair of SAPC, said: “SAPC’s role is to provide a clear voice and strong presence for academic primary care. The ASM is the highlight of the academic primary care calendar in the UK. It provides a fantastic opportunity to show how academic primary care can improve practice and policy, and have a positive impact for patients. I am particularly excited to see the focus on sustainability, which is increasingly recognised as fundamental to the way health services are delivered. We are looking forward to joining the team in Bristol for our ASM in 2024.”
