Primary care networks conference for clinical directors

Date: 05 June 2019

Location: London

Time: 9:30AM - 4:30PM

The BMA and GPDF, in conjunction with NHS England, are jointly hosting a conference for PCN (primary care network) clinical directors. 

By 15 May, all PCN clinical directors should be appointed. Our PCN clinical directors conference will bring them together to hear from experts in the field and to share their experiences and knowledge.

Topics for plenary sessions will include PCNs in the wider NHS system, PCN contractual requirements and PCN legal structures.

With significant opportunity for networking, attendees will be able to choose three workshops from a list including strategic & clinical Leadership, relationship building, working with LMCs, and engaging the wider primary care sector.

Network agreement clinic (with BMA Law): BMA Law and other experts will be available throughout the day for individual discussions (limited to 30 mins) about the network agreement and associated schedules. 

Medical career coaches will explore your personal needs for the first 90 days of being a PCN clinical director. We can then draw up a schedule of support for your needs.

Spaces are limited so register now to avoid disappointment.



The GPDF exists to ensure representation, influence and support for Local Medical Committees, GPs and general practice. They achieve this by listening to and working with Local Medical Committees as the representative of GPs, and has the following aims:

  • To strengthen the ‘voice’ of Local Medical Committees and GPs at a nationally representative level
  • To fund interventions in legal and other related matters that benefit Local Medical Committees and wider general practice
  • To fund initiatives that support effective functioning of all Local Medical Committees and general practice
  • And engage in dialogue with LMCs, the General Practitioners Committee (BMA), and others to share knowledge and learning, and to promote unity across the profession

GPDF Primary logoThe GPDF funding structure is on a mutual basis across all GPs throughout Great Britain, based on a principle of shared investment for the common good.
