Elizabeth Blackwell Institute’s fourth Annual Public Lecture – GPs on the Brink: Restoring the Joy to General Practice
November 2, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
The Elizabeth Blackwell Institute welcomes Chair of the Royal College of General Practitioners Professor Helen Stokes-Lampard and theatre maker Viv Gordon to share the stage for the Institute’s fourth Annual Public Lecture GPs on the Brink: Restoring the Joy to General Practice.
The NHS underpinned by General Practice is where the vast majority of patient contact takes place. However General Practice has been on a precipice for some time – under-resourced and under-staffed our GPs are burning out and leaving the profession. Professor Stokes-Lampard, a GP in the Midlands and Chair of the Royal College of GPs talks about where the profession is now and how we all have a part to play in restoring the joy to General Practice, while Viv Gordon will share readings from her new theatre work PreScribed (a Life Written for Me).
