The 25th Managing Drug and Alcohol Problems in Primary Care Conference 2020 will take place on Thursday 25 and Friday 26 March 2021 at RCGP HQ, 30 Euston Square, London, and online. It’s the Silver Anniversary of this long running conference. At a time when the sands are shifting so much beneath us, it’s good to have an event that has stood the test of time. Even if it has to be largely digital, the conference can inspire and share best practice. We will find creative ways to not only have some clear presentations with interactive Q&A but also get encouragement from different areas around the UK and learn how it is still possible to provide effective and safe services.

This joint RCGP and SMMGP conference is the largest event in the UK for GPs, shared care workers, nurses and other primary care staff, specialists, commissioners and researchers interested in, and involved with the management of drug and alcohol users in primary care.

Conference Chairs:

  • Dr Stephen Willott, GP, Clinical Lead for Alcohol & Drug Misuse, Public Health Dept, Nottingham City Council 
  • Kate Halliday, SMMGP / FDAP Executive Director, Councillor for Shrewsbury Town and Shropshire Council
