We would like to invite you to attend the Richard Scott Lecture at the beautiful Playfair Library on 15th June 2017.
This lecture is a long-standing Edinburgh tradition; it was established in memory of Richard Scott the first Professor of General Practice in Scotland and indeed the World. It aims to cover topics of relevance to UK Primary Care with a focus on innovative and contemporary research grounded in general practice.
The 2017 lecture will be held by John Campbell, Professor of General Practice and Primary Care, University of Exeter, on the subject of
Patient experience research: an illustrious past, but time to call it a day?
Classical primary care research emanating from Lothian in the 1990s suggested an important link between consultation length and patients’ experiences of care. But those findings have been contested in recent years. In addition, major workforce pressures are currently facing general practice throughout the UK. So, is it time to blow the whistle on patient experience research? – and how can good quality general practice care be achieved in a cost-constrained healthcare environment?
John Campbell is Professor of General Practice and Primary Care in Exeter, having previously held academic posts in Edinburgh and London. He is an established primary care researcher with many papers addressing issues relating to the accessibility, quality, and organisation of general practice-based primary care and related clinical research.
For those who are interested there will an optional dinner – a chance to carry on the discussions from the lecture! Details will be sent to those who wish to attend in due course.
