The Primary Care Programme 2016 has been developed in collaboration with PCRS-UK and IPCRG. The organisers look forward to welcoming all delegates interested in primary care practice, as well as academic clinicians, policymakers, healthcare managers and researchers with an interest in delivering high quality care for people with respiratory disease in primary care.

"Primary Care Day: challenging times" consist of 4 sessions

 9.00-10.30:  Clinical challenges in day-to-day primary care - The first session of the day addresses three common challenges that we face in daily practice.

11.00-12.20: Taking up the challenge - The second session of the day addresses four approaches to addressing challenges.

13.30-14.30: Meeting tomorrow's challenge - The third session of the day highlights three innovative approaches for the future.

15.00-16.30: Grand Round - The final session of the day builds on the insights of the day to consider solutions for familiar clinical challenges.
