Newly qualified GPs

Conference information

Everything newly qualified GPs need to know about attending the RCGP Annual Conference.

Whether you’ve recently CCT’d and just gone into independent practice or are 3-4 years post
qualification and after the initial whirlwind you find yourself with some time to breath and
think ‘what now’?

Being a First5 GP at any stage can be a daunting, yet exciting place. We are here to help
launch, guide and support the next path in your career.

The RCGP Annual Conference is the perfect opportunity to not only get some CPD, contributing to your own development and appraisal, but also to meet other new GPs and colleagues, attend social events, and build a supportive and collaborative network from across the UK and beyond.

Many First5 attendees who attended for the first time in 2019 were surprised at just how informative, engaging and energising the conference was, surpassing their expectations.

Come and join us in Glasgow – the First5 Committee really look forward to welcoming you!
