What you will learn

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

The conference will also include presentations on ‘Investigations’ and cover the top three mistakes doctors engaged in private practice make and how Medical Defence Organisations can help its members.


Conference highlights

Presentations including:

  • An overview of private healthcare
  • The interface between primary and secondary care
  • Self pay and private medical insurance patients
  • Multi-disciplinary teams
  • An update from the Private Healthcare Information Network.


Parallel sessions

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: primary care 

This session will focus on providing practical advice GPs will find very helpful when setting up in private practice and will also cover current issues facing private GPs
