Event overview


We're thrilled to unveil plans for our third East Midlands Early Career GP Conference, building on the resounding success of last year’s event. this event promises an exceptional line-up of speakers and experiences (and great food) as we help you "Network, Thrive, Be Inspired" the motto that drives each one of these events.

Join us as we continue to foster connections, empower growth, and ignite inspiration in our vibrant community of Early Career GPs across the East Midlands.

The date is set for Wednesday 19 June 2024 at Holywell Park Conference Centre, Loughborough.

This day-long, FREE conference is themed around creating and strengthening links between us all. 

It aims to give you the tools and the confidence to thrive in this brave new world of primary care. Come and be inspired to new heights of personal and professional development, healthy professional growth to kickstart your early career.

There will also be a Poster competition with the main prize of £200! Further information will be shared when registered.

Reserve your place and we will see you in June!


* All are welcome to the conference though it is aimed at Earlier Career GPs.

Tickets will be initially released to: First5 GPs (GPs in their first 5 years post qualification) and ST3 GP trainees CCTing this Summer 2024.

We will release further tickets if able for other GPs in their “Early Career” (but out of the First5)!

This event is for GPs in the East Midlands. If spaces are available, we will open it out more broadly.


What to expect


The programme will treat delegates to a wealth of inspirational speakers on the four streams chosen for 2024. 

  1. Inspiration and leadership will help build your confidence in leading change, banishing imposter syndrome and starting a movement.  
  2. Financial and legal advice will explore maintaining safe practice, negotiating the stress of an inquest and financial tips.
  3. Kick starting your early career explores the opportunities available to you in the first few years of practice and how to address them confidently.
  4. The Future of General Practice explores where our career may take us, the trials and opportunities down the road and getting the contract and profession you want and deserve.

The day will also address some of the areas which many newly qualified GPs find difficult or wish to explore in greater depth such as preparing for an inquest, finances, top tips to maintain safe practice and getting the contract you want!

We know that our programme will keep our next generation of doctors invigorated, informed, and inspired. It will re-energise us all to bring fresh ideas about the endless possibilities that a career in General Practice offers us!
