Summit announcement: Burning GP, June 2024

3 minute read

GPs are taking back control of their destiny, and you are invited.

Burning GP – GPs taking back control of their destiny.

General practice and GPs are in crisis.

The traditional community medicine model is under siege. The bricks-and-mortar team-based practice will likely not survive in its current form long into the future.
GPs are facing disruption from a number of converging forces, and in the face of all these issues the tone around the idea of being a GP is becoming increasingly negative.

But if you step back and examine the key social, business, and technology trends, it’s really a very interesting time to be a GP.
Burning GP is a new event brought to you by The Medical Republic and Health Services Daily. Over a day and a half we will bring together key leaders and influencers from general practice, government, and the technology sector to examine key trends affecting the profession of general practice and map out an alternative and more positive trajectory for the sector. 
That, and have a bit of fun along the way.
