RPAS Conference 2014 – Programme now available

Craigmonie Hotel, Inverness

Craigmonie Hotel, Inverness

The annual RPAS (Remote Practitioners’ Association of Scotland) conference will be held on Thursday 6th to Saturday 8th November 2014.  As with tradition, it will once again be held at the Craigmonie Hotel in Inverness.

The programme includes a keynote speech from Mr Alex Neil MSP, and Scottish Cabinet Secretary for Health & Wellbeing, on the Thursday afternoon at 2pm.

Also speaking are Mr Quentin Cox on orthopaedic injuries in rural practice, and an update from the Scottish Ambulance Service by Dr James Ward, SAS Medical Director.  There will be an intriguing talk from Dr Martin Wilson on ‘Square Pegs and Round Holes’ and a Drama Triangle workshop by Dr Andrew Tressider, who will come all the way up from Somerset.

In line with previous years, RPAS has managed to coincide the conference to fit with the GP Update course, which takes place on Wednesday 5th November.  We’ve featured what GP Update can offer in a separate post – you can also take a look at their website where you can find out more info about rates and course content.
