In a packed day of sessions, delegates on Sunday will hear about ‘Improving relations between general practice and community pharmacy’ from Jay Patel of Day Lewis Pharmacy and discussions on Brexit and implications for pharmacy, women in pharmacy and ideas for improving the pharmacy business ‘bottom line’.

The Falsified Medicines Directive is the subject of two sessions on Monday 9th October. Peter Blundell of MHRA will look at ‘FMD, thefts and diversion from the pharmaceutical supply chain’ and Bharat Shah of Sigma Pharmaceuticals will discuss the opportunties and threats involved with the initiative. Other talks during the day include ‘Adding the right private services that make profit’ from Ash Soni of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society and ‘How to set up a travel clinic’ from Jasmine Shah for the NPA.
