The BMA private practice committee (PPC) will be holding a virtual conference on Monday 15 November 2021.

Doctors working within independent healthcare are continually having to adapt their practices to an ever-changing landscape, never more so than during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This conference will look at the 'ins and outs' of private practice from the logistics of setting up in private practice for the first time, to making sure established practitioners are reaching their maximum potential.

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.

CPD accreditation has been applied for.
