Haere mai, Kia ora, Talofa lava, Bula Vinaka, Mālō e lelei, Fakaalofa lahi atu, Ni hao, Namaste, Chao, Kia orana, and greetings to you all.
GP23: the conference for general practice will be hosted in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland, the City of Sails from Friday 21 to Sunday 23 July 2023 at the Aotea Centre.
We are creating a conference programme with our GPs’ and rural hospital doctors’ interests in mind which will appeal to the wider primary health care sector with informative presentations, panel discussions, and practical sessions featuring sector experts.
It’s a challenging time to be working in primary healthcare with workforce shortages and burnout numbers higher than they’ve ever been. Nobody chooses community medicine as a career because it’s the ‘easy’ option and our whakatauki this year speaks to that. We are about community, collaboration, working for the greater good, and being stronger together.
Being sustainable is so much more than greening general practice; it’s about how we support and grow the workforce so that in 10; 20; 50 years our communities are still served by a diverse workforce of highly skilled medical specialists who understand their specific and complex health needs and can deliver care.
The annual College conference is a
highlight of each year and we very much look forward to working with you to
make it bigger and better than ever.
