2021 Call for Abstracts

The University of Leeds, Leeds Institute of Health Sciences, is managing the Scientific Programme of the annual SAPC conference, which showcases the latest research and education in academic primary care.

In 2021 the conference will be virtual.

Submission deadline 28th February 2021.

We invite you to submit work in the following formats: 

Conference programme and themes

The Scientific Committee is particularly keen to receive abstracts outlining research, education, innovatins and policy which speak to our conference theme: Living and Dying Well and primary care generally. We are planning a dedicated education stream and welcome submissions relating to this theme too.

Our conference theme of ‘Living and Dying Well’ is a celebration of the central role of primary care in maximising wellness for people across their life course. We particularly welcome submissions that map closely to this theme. However, submissions are welcome on any topic relating to research and educational activities in primary care both in the UK and internationally. The programme will be carefully planned, to ensure that there will be the same number of total presentation slots at this year’s meeting as there have been in the past.

We hope that you will come and join us virtually!


Notifications of the status of your submission following peer review and the programme meeting will be emailed to submitters by the 7th of May 2021.

Types of presentation

The programme will include keynote presentations, parallel sessions of verbal presentations, posters and workshops.   

Bursaries and prizes

We have a number of bursaries and prizes on offer.
