About this event

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 address topics such as the private medical insurance and the self pay markets, challenges consultants face working with private medical insurers, engagement with private hospital groups and registration with the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
