The BMA private practice committee (PPC) will be holding its annual conference on Wednesday 11 April 2018 at BMA House, London.

Doctors working within independent healthcare are continually having to adapt their practices to an ever changing landscape. This conference will look at the 'ins and outs' of private practice, from the logistics of setting up a private practice for the first time to making sure established practitioners are reaching their maximum potential in private practice.

For new entrants to the private sector, the conference will offer a chance to network with colleagues who have already established and run successful practices.
