Queen Mary University London

Scientific chair: Dr Deborah Swinglehurst

Our team at Queen Mary University London are hosting the annual conference which showcases the latest research and education in academic primary care, and provides an opportunity to share relevant methodological developments. 

Scientific programme

The Conference programme will be dedicated to providing opportunities to share your work through oral presentations, posters, symposia and workshops. By popular demand we will also continue some of the new features from the 2017 programme (e.g. the doctoral masterclass).  

We are keen to showcase the academic work of our international primary care colleagues in Europe and beyond.  We also plan to include a special emphasis on the challenges faced by populations on the move: migration, displacement, homelessness, delivering cross-cultural primary care, for example. Preference will be given to papers which highlight primary care as expert generalism and which embrace the complexity of delivering person-centred care. 

The call for abstracts is now closed but you can still see the text for abstract submission and the different types of presentation.

Social programme

We have organised a social programme which will provide a chance to network with colleagues and make new friends. This will begin on Tuesday 10th July at the drinks reception which will be held in The Great Hall at Barts – a great opportunity to see this wonderful building. It will continue on Wednesday 11th July with the conference dinner at The Tower Hotel in its magnificent location next to Tower Bridge and The Tower of London.

Our team will also provide some extra activities such as a run and walking tours.

We hope that you will come and join us in July 2018 to enjoy the conference and take the opportunity to explore London.

The Audience

Directions to Barbican Centre, Silk Street, London EC2Y 8DS

Please use the Silk Street entrance.  If travelling from the Barbican underground cross Aldersgate Road and walk along Beech Street (under the tunnel) at the end turn right into Silk Street and you will see the entrance to the Barbican Centre, there is generally quite a bit of traffic on this route. For a route with less traffic and more pedestrian areas walk from Moorgate Underground Station.
