SAPC SE Regional Meeting 2022 - virtual

20-21 January 2022

About this event

We are delighted to invite you to the South-East Annual Scientific Meeting of the Society of Academic Primary Care 2022, hosted by The Research Department of Primary Care & Population Health at UCL. We will be hosting the conference in a virtual format over two days using the Whova platform (please see instructions below)

SAPC (Society of Academic Primary Care) is a national organisation which brings together university departments of general practice and primary care to promote excellence in research, education, and policy development in these fields. The event is aimed at all those involved in the academic study of primary care in southeast England.

This year our theme is: ‘Primary Care – Building Back Better?’ Our theme encourages sharing of knowledge, lessons learnt and ideas for change – prior to and during the pandemic - to help shape the future of primary care. The event will focus on areas such as health inequality and change including digital healthcare and innovative tools to address disparities in health care. We hope to reflect the famous community aspect of this well-loved conference which will incorporate two keynote speakers, alongside multiple opportunities to be involved including: oral presentations, poster presentations, an innovative dragons' den session and a panel discussion as well as opportunities for networking.
