Network with your local faculty at the Vibrant Faculties session on Thursday afternoon, then you’ll find us all at Thursday’s social at Revolucion de Cuba catching up with old friends and new!

One of our favourite sessions – NHS Question Time is always an energetic way to start off Friday, grilling our GP leaders with live questions from the audience.

Before lunch, I'll be heading to one of the short paper sessions as I'm interested in academic GP and it's a great way to keep up to date with the latest research. Later you'll find me in the Fresh approaches to undergraduate teaching session, getting inspired for my medical education future!

Now I've been working for a year, I'm more drawn to some of the clinical sessions, making links between my day job and these sessions, so I'm tempted by the respiratory clinical content. Another session that has caught my eye is Queer Eye for LGBTQI health following some fascinating discussions in last year's Discover GP Series events.

I'm really looking forward to the Net-Zero Carbon GP and Tackling the Inverse Care Law sessions on Friday as these are particular interests of mine.

Ask the Chairs is a great opportunity for you to meet and put your questions to the chairs of the RCGP councils on Friday afternoon.

The Inspire Awards are taking place on Friday evening this year, recognising all the achievements of member volunteers over the past year, a great way to end your Conference experience!

It’s a busy two days but it will fly by! We hope you have a fantastic experience, no matter how you choose to spend your time, and we’re looking forward to seeing you in October!

Top tips & what to expect

Check out the programme beforehand so you can plan your days in advance.

Don’t forget the social events! There’s something for everyone whether you’re looking for a Friday morning run or an evening of music and dance.

Make sure to give yourself time to explore the exhibition and check out the RCGP stand.

There’s so much on offer, it can feel a bit overwhelming! Pick sessions that you think sound engaging and complement your interests.

Conference is a great opportunity to make friends and expand your professional network so don’t be afraid of talking to people you meet – everyone is very friendly so start up a conversation and you could make a long-lasting contact or find an amazing speaker for your next GP Society event.

Make sure to check out where you’re booking your accommodation – there’s plenty of space right next to the ACC itself, or slightly further into Liverpool centre. If you’re travelling with others, book travel and accommodation together to have a friend.
