The BMA private practice committee (PPC) will be holding its annual conference on Friday 5 April 2019 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.
- Dr Shree Datta, Chairman of the BMA private practice committee, will discuss the relationship with private medical insurers
- Professor Ursula Gallagher, CQC deputy chief inspector of primary medical services and integrated care, will give a presentation on registration with the Care Quality Commission
- Mr Keith Pollard, executive chairman at LaingBuisson International, will discuss the changing landscape of private practice
- Dr Neil Haughton, president of Independent Doctors Federation, will give a presentation on the interface between primary and secondary care
As part of the programme you will have an opportunity to attend one of the following parallel sessions scheduled to take place during the afternoon:
- Parallel session 1: GPs starting in PP
This session will focus on providing practical advice that GPs will find very helpful as they set up
- Parallel session 2: Consultants starting in PP
This session will give advice on aspects of contemporary secondary care that consultants will find very useful as they set up
- Parallel session 3: Established GPs and consultants in PP
You may be established but is your practice performing to its full potential? This session will cover aspects of how to get the most out of your practice
