SAPC Conference: 26 - 27 January 2017

Primary Care at the Coalface: Mining for Diamonds

Diamond and coalThe Society for Academic Primary Care (SAPC) has held conferences at Madingley Hall for more than 20 years now. This year, it is the honour of Imperial College to take up the baton of organising this meeting of some of the best and brightest minds in medical education and research. The conference provides an ideal setting in which to meet and discuss ideas with your colleagues from all around the UK. There will be a varied and stimulating programme around the theme of "Primary Care at the Coalface: Mining for Diamonds". 

Madingley Hall is an elegant country house built in the 16th century by Sir John Hynde, with landscapes designed by the celebrated gardener Lancelot “Capability” Brown. Since then it has been occupied by his descendants before passing to Queen Victoria, who rented the Hall to her son (the future King Edward VII) to live in while he was an undergraduate at Cambridge University. Since 1948 Madingley Hall and the surrounding park and farmland has been owned by the University and is currently the home of the Institute of Continuing Education. The Hall is located in the historic village of Madingley, just four miles west of Cambridge. 

This year, we welcome Dr David Hirsh as our keynote speaker.
