The DDA Conference 

The popular DDA annual conference returns alongside Best Practice. This will continue to allow their members to benefit from additional learning and networking, and place an additional 400+ dispensing GPs in front of our exhibitors.

The Dispensing Doctors' Association (DDA) represents over 6,600 doctors currently working in 1,290 dispensing practices across the UK. It is the only organisation that specifically represents the interests of dispensing doctors and their 8.8 million patients.

Dispensing doctors are general practitioners (GPs) who provide primary healthcare to over nine million UK rural patients. Nearly 3.8 million of these patients live remotely from a community pharmacy; at the patient's request dispensing doctors are allowed to dispense the medicines they prescribe for these patients.

  • "I attended last year and was impressed. It is really useful to get details on the national and strategic agenda. It’s also great to have the DDA incorporated so I can attend some sessions there too, plus it is a time to speak to the suppliers you want to, when you have time, unlike in the practice!"

  • "Best Practice has been great to get up to date with clinical, admin and technology aspects. There is a good variety of talks here."
