What they said

  • "The conference programme has been great at bringing me up to date with the new revalidation reforms. It was also an absolutely brilliant exhibition, with so many stalls! I’ve also managed to get in lots of networking with other nurses which is great."
    Joice Skeeter
    Practice Nurse
  • ‘Best Practice is great because it is about the future of primary care. It has also been interesting to hear about the primary care home and how we can all work together – that is definitely a good way to go forward. I have picked up lots of ideas to take back for how we can make changes. There is a lot of negativity out there but I have been getting a lot of positive messages from Best Practice and that is good to hear. In general practice it is easy to stay stuck in your own practice or your own locality and just worry about what’s going on with you personally. It’s good to get out to a conference like this to find out what is going on in other places and to get an insight into the bigger picture.’
    Dr Shaun Pike
    Chair Worcestershire LMC and GP principal
  • ‘Best Practice provides the opportunity to expand your skills and knowledge because of the range and scope of talks and exhibitors that are here. For me the most important thing is that people here are talking about the importance of needing to do something different. There is recognition that we can’t continue to do what we’ve always done. You can’t learn these things looking through journals or scanning the Internet. It’s great to be at Best Practice and hear it straight from the horse’s mouth"
    Philippa Hunt
    Head of Leadership and Workforce Redesign, NHS England
  • ‘I come to Best Practice every year because it’s a really useful forum to find out what’s happening and what is current. As a commissioner it is really good to be able to lean what is happening around the country and to be able to see the national picture and to take that learning back. I’ve been hearing a lot of great new things about the primary care home, about neighbourhoods and how different areas are using their workforce. I’ve also been to some really good clinical talks around health improvement, which is a big topic for us in Bolton.’
    Lynda Helsby
    Associate Director Primary Care and Health Improvement, NHS Bolton CCG
  • ‘This is my first time at Best Practice and I have come because my colleagues told me it was fab. It is an opportunity to get your head above the parapet. The variety of lectures give you an overview of what’s happening nationally in primary care and how we can adapt best to all the changes that are happening and stay ahead of the game.’
