Primary Care Resilience WebEx series:

Connect, rebuild and move forward together

The response to COVID-19 has led to a rapid change in how general practice operates. To support the sharing of learning, we have developed a Primary Care Resilience WebEx series in collaboration with colleagues from Scottish Government and the Royal College of General Practitioners.

In these WebEx sessions you will be able to connect with peers, take part in discussions on current topics and reflect on what this could mean for the future of primary care.

Topics will change each session and will be based on your feedback. This is to ensure that we are focusing on the most current and relevant topics in primary care and your practice.
