LONDON, October 22 /PRNewswire/ -- The future of the NHS is in the balance. Current healthcare spending is unsustainable. Funding to meet the population's health needs is being cut by up to 20 billion pounds Sterling over three years; policies are unclear and there is speculation that PBC is dead!

The NAPC Annual Conference 2009 on 17th and 18th November in Birmingham will provide critical clarity on the commissioning, financial and business challenges facing primary care today.

This year's new look event brings together the leading and most influential change agents in the UK health economy to provide practical tools on delivering innovative and evidence-based healthcare today, tomorrow and beyond.

With three streams to choose from; lunchtime symposiums, as well as the Williams Medical Supplies Practice Manager of the Year and Vision Awards gala dinner, the conference not only provides practical information, but plenty of opportunities to debate the future of primary care.

Delegate tickets start at 225 pounds + VAT

Press passes available on special request.
