We are excited to be hosting the SAPC ASM  2024 at the Centre for Academic Primary Care in the vibrant city of Bristol.  

The conference runs from the 3rd - 5th of July and will be held in the University of Bristol Wills Memorial Building in the heart of the city. 

Our conference theme this year is ‘Sustainable Primary Care:  healthy systems, healthy people’.  We are interpreting sustainability broadly, including maintaining a happy and healthy workforce across health care and academic sectors, in the context of the global environmental crisis that we face. In line with our conference theme, we are inviting a range of inspiring speakers to inform and sustain us at the conference and beyond.  

Alongside our plenary speakers, we want to hear from the whole range of health and care professionals, academics, educators, and public contributors who shape primary care.  This involves you - we look forward to welcoming submissions of work in the form of posters, oral presentations, workshops, creative enquiry, and dangerous ideas reflecting the broad range of academic primary care research.  We look forward to seeing your great research and ideas.   

Our social events will include a chance to visit the Royal West of England Academy (RWA) for welcome drinks.  The RWA is Bristol's first art gallery and has brought world-class visual art to the Southwest since 1844. The conference dinner will be held in the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery. This beautiful building is a few minutes’ walk from the conference venue and has free entry to a collection of art, nature, and history. 

In the spirit of our conference theme, we encourage you to think about your preparations for travel with sustainability in mind. In turn, we will work with a local sustainability team who will use our conference as a case study to explore how conferences can be delivered in a sustainable way.    

We look forward to welcoming you to Bristol in July 2024.
