Responding to and supporting people of all ages with mental health issues in primary care is becoming increasingly challenging. Whilst there is a rise in public awareness and government policy of the need to promote mental health and improve access to services the reality is there remains problems with access and the quality of care experienced by service users.
This meeting seeks to empower clinicians, commissioners and service users in responding to current mental health challenges in primary care through partnership.
It brings together service users, practitioners, researchers, academics, commissioners and service providers wishing to transform the experience of mental health care provision.
The learning objectives of this meeting are as follows:
• To enhance participants understanding, skills and knowledge in partnership, economics and practical approaches to innovative service development and delivery
• Outline approaches to bridging primary and secondary care support needs
• To negotiate uncertainty within mental health consultations, emerging clinical and arts-based innovations
• Respond to the needs of people with Learning Disabilities and Mental health

Medical ethics is part of both the formal (MRCGP/GMC) curriculum and the informal (what clinicians should know) curriculum. The course is intended to be interactive and will be taught and facilitated by Dr Papanikitas and Dr Spicer who have been teaching ethics to GPs and other healthcare professionals for over 10 years.
This meeting will focus on some of the key medico-legal issues that impact GPs, primary care and patient safety, with a specific emphasis on inquests, clinical negligence and incidents.
Limited bursary places are available for GPs on a first-come, first-served basis.
