PDA National Conference 2019

“Moving from Supply to Services: Managing the risks; Embracing the Opportunities”. The PDA National Conference takes place in Birmingham on 30 – 31 March 2019. This event provides the perfect opportunity to engage and connect with other members, in addition to discovering more information on emerging opportunities and practical guidance to help effectively manage risk.

Sat 30th - Sun 31st March 2019

Whilst healthcare professionals are working very hard, the system does not often allow them to work smart by enabling them to focus more on their unique skills. For Doctors, this is diagnosis, for pharmacists this is about the use of medicines – to include prescribing. Much of healthcare, especially primary care is not integrated, resulting in significant waste and a poor patient journey. We want to instigate change to enable the sector to work smarter and to promote safe and satisfying practice.

Please come and join us to hear from a wide range of speakers focusing on issues which affect you. Have your say and get involved in determining the sectors’ future.

The PDA national conference will offer you the opportunity to catch up with everything that the PDA has been doing on your behalf, hear from renowned national and international speakers, engage in discussions and network with your peers.

The PDA national conference is FREE FOR PDA MEMBERS; however places are limited so we urge you to reserve your place as soon as possible. Non-members that would like to attend can pay £195 to attend both days or £110 to attend either one of the two days.

Too far to travel? Want to access something closer to home? Did you know that the PDA are also holding events in Wales (23 May) and Scotland (6 November).
