Introducing the SAPC Annual Scientific Meeting 2021

The Society for Academic Primary Care (SAPC) and the Division of Primary Care, Palliative Care and Public Health at the University of Leeds is delighted to be hosting the 49th Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) of the SAPC to be held on Wednesday 30th June and Thursday 1st July 2021. 

This will be a virtual meeting comprising our usual programme features of keynotes, oral presentations within parallel sessions, workshops and posters.  Opportunities will be available for networking on-line on a one to one basis and in groups.  There will be dedicted discussion time for posters.  Poster presenters will be able to add a short video clip to their poster, upload handouts and receive contact requests from delegates.  We plan to be as family friendly as possible and hold the sessions within a short day. 


The SAPC ASM is the preeminent meeting in the UK devoted to sharing new developments in primary care research, teaching and education. The conference brings together delegates from the UK primary care community alongside delegates from across the UK, Europe and around the world. Participants include clinicians, researchers, educators, allied health professionals, students, patients and trainees – all of whom share an interest in academic primary care.

Conference theme “Living and Dying Well”

More than 90% of all NHS contacts take place in primary care. 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.  

Discover, explore and share the latest advances in primary care research.


We look forward to welcoming you to the ASM 2021 virtual conference.
