We're sorry that the SAPC ASM 2020 has been cancelled
20th March 2020
We regret to inform you that we have taken the difficult decision of cancelling the 2020 Annual Scientific Meeting due to be held 15th -17th July in Leeds. Although we do not yet know if government restrictions will still be in place in July, we anticipate that our primary care community will still be facing significant challenges within the workplace that they will need to prioritise.
Anyone who has already registered will be contacted by our office to organise a refund for conference attendance and advise you of how to cancel university accommodation.
Finally, we have received approximately 300 submissions for workshops and presentations. Thank you to everyone who has worked so hard to prepare and submit these. We are actively considering how we can acknowledge these submissions, and will update all authors in due course.
We do hope you understand our decision has not been taken lightly. We are reliant on the support of our Society Members at this difficult time. Please take the very best of care for yourselves while COVID-19 runs its course.
With best wishes
Carolyn Chew-Graham (Chair of SAPC),
Sue Richards (Chair of Leeds Organising Committee)
Richard Neal (Chair of Leeds Scientific Committee)

The Leeds Institute of Health Sciences, University of Leeds is delighted to be hosting the 49th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Society for Academic Primary Care (SAPC)
We are planning a baby friendly conference.
While you're here discover the City by following the Owl Trail.
Programme and theme
This annual conference showcases the latest research and education in academic primary care from the UK and around the world in keynote presentations, parallel sessions of verbal presentations and workshops and will also feature a creative arts stream.
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. Please note that we have taken a decision NOT to have any paper posters. We have done this after undertaking some market research. Instead we are welcoming both long (10 min plus 5 min Q&A) and short (3 min plus 2 min Q&A) oral presentations. The programme has been carefully planned, however, 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.
