SAPC ASM is hosted by Queen Mary University from 10-12 July this year and promises to provide an extremely busy three days highlighting the latest research and education in academic primary care at London's Barbican Centre.

The programme will showcase the work of local and international primary care colleagues with a special emphasis on the challenges faced by populations on the move: migration, displacement, homelessness, delivering cross-cultural primary care. Themes include Education, Migration and Migrant Health, Cancer, Ageing and Frailty, and Patient Clinical Relationship. We wish our School members well during their presentations which include:
