Scientific Poster Programme

The RCGP Primary Care Conference & Exhibition 2021 showcases up to 300 posters and papers from researchers and innovators, keen to present their work to the 1,500 GPs, academics and other health care professionals attending the event.

The posters are an essential part of the conference and are prominently displayed in the exhibition hall on Thursday 14 and Friday 15 October 2021, where they attract huge interest from delegates.

Successful poster presenters have the opportunity to upload their poster online which means there is no longer the need to print or transport your poster. The innovative ePoster software is designed to make the upload of your poster possible in just 10 minutes. The posters are displayed on large, high definition 55-inch plasma monitors, while also being accessible on-demand online, in a mobile-friendly format.

All posters will be published online after the conference, unless specifically requested otherwise. This will enable your poster to be available to anyone outside of the conference, visible for 12 months.

Why present a poster?

  • Showcase project work and gain constructive feedback to help shape future activity.
  • Share successes and failures from which others can learn.
  • Exchange expertise and knowledge with your peers – your work could make a real difference.
  • Start conversations and collaborations with teams nationally and internationally.
  • Refine your presentation skills, promote yourself and your institution.
  • Get your poster showcased before, during and after the conference.
  • Create and submit a short video to accompany your poster to showcase your work in an oral presentation.
  • Build your profile by displaying your work at a prestigious event.
  • Receive a certificate to gain recognition for your work.
