Conference programme and themes

The Scientific Committee is particularly keen to receive abstracts which complement the conference theme: Recovery and Innovation outlining research, education, innovations and policy and primary care generally. We are planning a dedicated education stream and welcome submissions relating to education especially innovation in education. 

Abstracts submitted on the topic of "education" will be considered for selection in the joint session with ASME on Wednesday 6th July.  One presentation will be selected from among the higher scoring education abstracts submitted to the SAPC ASM 2022. 

Our conference theme of ‘Recovery and Innovation" is a celebration of the way our community has found innovative ways of responding to the COVID19 pandemic and how it is responding and recovering. 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. 

We hope that you will come and join us at UCLan, Preston.


Notifications of the status of your submission following peer review and the programme meeting will be emailed to submitters by the 30th April 2022.
