This year we are once again holding our sixth conference over two evenings utilising an online platform. The theme of Integration and Innovation reflects the key requirements of a sustainable future for community pharmacies whether they be single independents, regional or national groups. It also reflects the latest Government White Paper on the future of health and social care. This what the commissioners of our services want and need from us; it is also what changing consumer behaviours and expectations are driving. The future of health care is local and that needs strong, capable and united pharmacy leadership at both local and national level.
Our conference topics, speakers and panellists are chosen specifically to support this theme and we will ensure that delegates will have the opportunity to actively participate.
