  • This event forms part of our popular Primary Care Development workshop series. This workshop will discuss the current challenges of the existing medical model of care, like over-prescribing and over-treatment. It will also explore how disconnected initiatives such as social prescribing and shared decision making are part of ‘re-thinking medicine’ with an opportunity for primary and community care to take the lead. Professor Martin Marshall, (Programme Director- Population Health and Primary & Community Care, UCLPartners; Vice-Chair, RCGP; Professor of Healthcare Improvement- Primary Care and Population Health, UCL ) will set the scene using current conversations and case for re-thinking medicine. A panel of esteemed experts from health, public health and social care will discuss the local context and interventions supporting the ‘re-thinking medicine’ agenda locally across the UCLPartners partnership. The event will be followed by a drinks reception providing the opportunity to network with local leaders in primary care and population health.
