The Centre for Academic Primary Care (CAPC) at the University of Bristol is proud to host the South West regional meeting of the Society for Academic Primary Care (SAPC) in Bristol in 2020.

This annual conference brings together clinical and non-clinical academics, researchers and clinicians to share the latest primary care research findings from across the region and Wales, including primary care research centres in:

  • Bangor
  • Birmingham
  • Bristol
  • Cardiff
  • Exeter
  • Oxford
  • Plymouth
  • Southampton
  • Swansea
  • Warwick.

We're looking forward to a packed and varied programme guided by our '20:20 vision for primary care' theme.

Bristol - a great host city

Bristol is a lively city, the biggest in the South West. It was named the best place to live in the UK by the Sunday Times in 2017. It's the home of Banksy, Wallace & Gromit and the SS Great Britain! The venue is right by Bristol's harbourside in the heart of the city, close to national rail and bus links. Watch this amazing time-lapse video of the city, created by local resident Xavier Legros.

We look forward to welcoming you to our vibrant city.
