RCGP Rural Forum: Education Day postponed to 16th March 2012

The RCGP Rural Forum have organised a conference that will appeal to all rural GPs across the UK, and beyond…

Generalism is core to the programme, which also makes light of recent policy changes that will affect health care across the UK.  Presentations will range from the commissioning debate (including views from Scotland and England), to core clinical topics such as acute orthopaedics – led by Dr Leo Murray, Rural Practitioner from Skye.

The event will appeal to practitioners from a broad range of rurality.  A joint injections workshop is being provided by Mr Quentin Cox of Raigmore Hospital, Inverness, and Dr Deb Lee, Paediatrician from West Cumberland Hospital will review children’s health issues in rural areas.

The one-day conference will take place in the Rheged Centre in Penrith, Cumbria – a location that’s well connected to rail and motorway links.

The day has been moved to March because high venue costs  were not matched by early applications and it is hoped that this will be a more suitable time of year for many GPs.

For the full programme and registration details,  see the application form here. Updated version coming soon…
