Essential Medical Dermatology 2017
8th - 10th March 2017
Venue: Willan House, London
Organisers: Conference & Event Services from the BAD
Email: conference@bad.org,uk


Dear Colleagues,

I know that some of you were with us in Harrogate last month for the second RCP annual conference (and helped with the programme development). We were really pleased with the conference and have had some very positive feedback, with 94% of delegates rating the programme as good or very good and 93% saying they would attend again.

We are already planning the 2017 conference and ask that you save the date. ‘Medicine 2017: RCP annual conference’ will take place in Manchester (at Manchester Central) on 16-17 March 2017.

Once again, we envisage the conference being amongst the most important event of our calendar and the leading annual event of the year for our fellows and members. It will

  • Provide high quality education, professional development and CPD credits.
    • Present the latest cutting-edge research.
    • Showcase high quality national and international speakers.
    • Offer a platform to influence government and decision-makers.

As with the 2015 and 2016 conferences, we will build the programme and content from ideas and suggestions from the membership and others. To this end, we are inviting programme proposals from fellows, members and others and would really welcome ideas from the council members and officers. The programme will be split into four main streams:

  • Clinical – following delegate feedback, there will be twice as many clinical sessions in 2017 (with a reduction in the allocation of sessions to education, policy and research)
  • education, training and medical professionalism
  • health services and policy
  • research and innovation.

You can submit your ideas via the attached proposal form and we would be grateful to receive these by midnight on 16 May 2016. I really do encourage you to get involved in shaping the programme.

We’re also delighted to let you know that we will be continuing the RCP Excellence in patient care awards at the 2017 conference. Find out more on the website. The closing date for applications is 1 October 2016. The awards ceremony will take place at the conference dinner at the end of the first day of the conference.

We encourage all council members to attend the conference so please do save the dates in your diaries.


Please email the conference team to be placed on the interested list - conference@bad.org.uk
