Message from the President and President Elect

Dear Colleague,

The beginning of a new academic year brings a change in the presidency of the Section and I shall be handing over to Dr Richard Gray on October 1st. I have enjoyed the last two years and would like to thank members of the Section and Council for their support. There are changes ahead in the way we deliver patient care and I am sure that Richard will provide the Section with strong leadership during this time of change. He brings to the presidency his experience of clinical practice, academia and his commitment to inter-professional learning. These are reflected in the programme he has planned for next year which he outlines below.

  Margaret
President

Dear Colleague

I would like to congratulate Professor Margaret Lloyd on her successful presidency and thank her for her invaluable contribution to the section during this time. I feel privileged to be taking over from her as president in October. Meanwhile we have been planning the academic programme for the next academic year and I would particularly like to bring to your attention to the next two section events:

  Firstly, we invite you join us for our first study day of the academic year which is being held on 19/11/11 and is entitled  “Your future in commissioning”. The day will be hosted by the general practice and primary care section of the RSM in association with the London Deanery. Whilst the day is designed to be useful for practice managers, GP registrars, and all GPs whatever their stage of professional development, it is specifically directed towards those who have little experience or knowledge of commissioning. We believe this will be a valuable and instructive day and as participant number will be limited, we would strongly encourage you to book a place as soon as possible.  Further details are included below.

We look forward to welcoming you to our section study day in November.

  Thank you,

  Richard
President Elect
