Community Pharmacy Conference 2010

15th March - International Convention Centre Birmingham

Now in its twelfth year the PSNC Community Pharmacy Conference is well established as the key event for LPCs, PCTs, SHAs and contractors to gather to discuss community pharmacy opportunities and developments.

This year the CPC focused on PNAs and pharmacy funding with speakers from the DH and NHS Employers using the occasion to address the changing pharmacy contract and a session aimed at PCTs on the importance of getting PNAs right. Changes to pharmacy funding featured both in the main and breakout sessions with other breakouts on PNAs, the Quality agenda and tackling the challenge of non- adherence. The final session brought together the days proceedings to send delegates away with the key messages and action points to take forward locally.
