Newly qualified GPs – everything you need to know

The RCGP Annual Conference is the must attend event of the year for the GP community (particularly new GPs) offering fantastic networking and learning opportunities as you continue to find your way in independent practice.

Join us in Liverpool, 14-15 October 2021 to learn, debate, share and get inspired with clinical sessions and workshops, essential CPD, poster presentations, thought-provoking speakers and much more.

Why attend?

Expert speakers

Our international reputation and contacts ensures the highest quality plenary speakers.

Quality learning

Our programme and content is peer reviewed by senior GPs to ensure we’re bringing you relevant and insightful information.


We connect you with over 1,200 of your peers, enabling you to network, inspire one another, learn and share experiences.

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 breathe and think ‘what now’?

Being a newly qualified (First5) GP at any stage can be a daunting, yet exciting place. The RCGP is here to help launch, guide and support you 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 meet other new GPs and colleagues, attend social events, and build a supportive and collaborative network from across the UK and beyond.

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