A trip to the seaside: Reflections on Brighton ASM 2023

One of my take-away thoughts from the SAPC annual scientific meeting in Preston last year was how great it was to see people again in real life. Although I think that most of us are spending a bit more time in the office, sitting in front of Microsoft Teams continues to account for a substantial proportion of our days. I for one certainly don’t need any excuse to get away from a screen. The opportunity to head off to the beach at Brighton to discuss academic matters with like-minded individuals at the SAPC Annual Scientific Meeting was therefore something I’ve been looking forward to for some...

Mentees

Are you interested in becoming a mentee with SAPC? The Mentorship scheme has been established by the primary healthcare scientists (PHoCuS) group (non-medical members) and the SAPC Executive to develop an increased number of primary health care scientists capable of operating at a world-class level and able to become the academic leaders of the future.

Mentorship programme

https://sapc.ac.uk/file/sapc-2018-form-mentors-docx The aim of the SAPC Mentorship Programme is to support academic colleagues working in departments of Primary Care. The Programme was established initially to help primary health care scientists (non-GPs), who, because of their heterogeneous core disciplines have no other single support scheme. We are delighted that SAPC is now able to extend the scheme to GP members. The mentorship scheme is designed to have a positive impact on career aspirations and development for such professionals and enhance their research productivity and leadership. In order to build a clear pathway, and community of mentorship practice, it is essential that the scheme is led and delivered by the most experienced researchers and clinical leaders from similar backgrounds.

SAPC ASM 2023 Welcome

I am really excited to welcome you all to this year’s annual scientific meeting, which we are hosting for the first time ever in Brighton. This is SAPC’s second in-person conference since the restrictions necessitated by the covid-19 pandemic have been lifted, and we hope to make it a very special and memorable experience for all. The theme of the conference this year is Informed and Inclusive Primary Care. Recent years have seen the gap between the least and most well-off in society widen, and this is reflected in a wide range of metrics that illustrate the impact of this inequity in the...
