Why Visit

Join over 5,700 healthcare professionals at Europe's largest event for general practice and primary care professionals

The new five-year GP contract and Primary Care Network DES unveiled in January is designed to confront once and for all some of the crippling pressures on the profession and firmly place primary care as the building blocks of Integrated Care Systems. Workforce, finance, premises, partnerships, pensions, indemnity, access, IT and an outdated QOF are all tackled head on with bold solutions, backed by the £4.5 billion additional investment in primary and community services by 2023.

The first ambitious step is for the whole of England to be covered by Primary Care Networks (PCNs), clusters of practices covering populations of between 30,000 and 50,000, going live on July 1. PCNs will be able to tap into investment worth £1.8 billion by 2023/24. And it will all be covered at Best Practice 2019!

What do GPs think...

  • “I’ve been coming to Best Practice for the last five years because of the variety of talks, The national speakers are always very good as are the clinical updates, the politics and the lively debates – it all helps to keep me up to date with what is happening in NHS. I always take back a lot of tips to the practice team. I also enjoy browsing all the stands to see what equipment is new or if there is anything that will help my patients, we don’t normally get a chance to see these things.”

  • I’ve come to Best Practice because I’m looking for some new career roles in general practice. This is a great place to meet all the different agencies and providers who can help with these opportunities. The networking opportunities are also really useful. I've been to quite a few GP conferences but this one is fantastic because it has so many exhibitors and such a large variety of talks to go to. It fulfils my requirements for appraisal and revalidation.”

  • Best Practice is an opportunity to talk directly to other colleagues in the whole primary care team. It is a chance to meet people and share experiences which make you realise you're not alone in tackling the things that are difficult. It is also the place to hear about the ideas that can actually make a difference. We don't have the capacity or time to try everything in our own practices so coming to Best Practice and hearing about what’s going on and making contacts can be really helpful.

  • I have found the exhibition very useful this year because my practice is about to undergo a significant premises expansion and we need a lot of new equipment. I have particularly enjoyed the DDA talks this year and networking with all the other members of the primary care team who visit this event.

  • I represent a cluster of 18 practices so this conference is a great opportunity to talk to a really good range of providers and stall holders who are all in one place. There are such a wide range of talks that it’s useful to be able to jump between the different theatres in order to get an update about what is going on in primary care. It is really good opportunity to meet lots of different people.

    Practice Manager, Priory Gate Practice Coventry
  • I’m training to be a practice manager so I have come to Best Practice to extend my knowledge. I have found the quality of the speakers to be very high. I have also met and interacted with a lot of really interesting people.
