We were proud to host the Chief Medical Officer’s Conference on Realistic Medicine here at the College in August. Over 200 of leading health professionals were in attendance to hear from expert speakers and to take part in practical workshops.

The Conference began in our Conference Centre, opened by Dr Christine Gregson, Clinical Advisor on Realistic Medicine and Dr Catherine Calderwood, Chief Medical Officer. Later, delegates broke off into smaller workshops which took place across our Great Hall, New Library and Cullen Suite. 

Delegates enjoyed a light refreshment break in the morning and lunch by Saltire Hospitality

“I was delighted to hold the first Realistic Medicine Conference – Can it be done? at the College which brought together a range of health professionals to hear expert speakers and participate in workshops. The event provided a platform for sharing Realising Medicine experiences from across Scotland as well as looking at how effective communication can enable the vision to become a reality.”
