About the course

A two-day conference on managing drug and alcohol problems in primary care.

The 23rd Managing Drug and Alcohol Problems in Primary Care Conference 2018 will take place on Thursday 29 - Friday 30 November 2018 at RCGP HQ, 30 Euston Square, London.

We are delighted to expand the 2018 conference to two full days of plenaries, workshops and networking opportunities.

This joint RCGP and SMMGP conference is the largest event in the UK for GPs, shared care workers, drug users, nurses and other primary care staff, specialists, commissioners and researchers interested in, and involved with the management of drug and alcohol users in primary care.

The conference will explore the roles primary care can play in drug and alcohol services, for example in the added value of being able to address coexisting health issues. With shrinking budgets there is a greater need to meet together to share best practice, get encouragement from other areas and learn how it is still possible to provide an effective service. 

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Dr Prun Bijral
  • Pete Burkinshaw
  • Dr Anne Connolly
  • Phil Harris
  • Professor Sir John Strang
  • Dr Stephen Willott (Chair)
