Innovations in Primary Care Conference

As we move towards a seven day NHS, experts have raised concerns that the already stretched Primary Care sector cannot take the strain. The GP Forward View, published in April 2016, sets out ambitious proposals aimed at boosting recruitment, investment in technology and developing GP Practices.

Annie Barr will be speaking at the Innovations in Primary Care Conference. The conference includes leading experts from the health sector who will provide unique insights into the challenges and opportunities created by the proposed changes to the NHS.

The Innovation in Primary Care Conference, run by the University of Salford takes place on November 22nd 2017, at 99 City Road Conference Centre, London.
