LPC Conference

16th September 2021 9.30-1.15pm

Online event

The annual LPC Conference remains an important event bringing LPCs together to share experience and learning, and giving them the chance to put forward their views for PSNC to consider in its planning processes. LPC representatives can speak and vote at the Conference and are able to debate current issues affecting the community pharmacy contractors that we all collectively represent.

The booking for this event has now closed.
