Introduction

We are really excited to offer a wide range of interesting, innovative and thought-provoking topics for our 2024 Conference which offers something for everyone. There are topics to suit clinicians, managers - in fact all senior leaders in general practice! Join us in a supportive, encouraging environment as we come together to inspire, learn, and help shape our own and our practices' future.

Agenda

'Here, Now...and Tomorrow'

We thought it would be useful to provider a taster for one of our breakout sessions for dispensing practices. Take a listen to this podcast and come along to hear Ed Kennedy & Dr Ben Inglis talk about the challenges of being a dispensing practice and ideas on how to resolve these.
