Annual Conference 2017

The RPS Annual Conference is the highlight of the pharmacy calendar in the UK.

Each year more than 500 attendees across every sector gather to network, influence, share insights and knowledge. Hosted in a brand new location, this year’s Annual Conference spans two days, four streams, and countless opportunities.

  • Reality of healthcare change - In a changing and challenging healthcare environment, prepare for the future and find out about emerging opportunities in pharmacy and a vision of health services in the future
  • Health challenges of our time - Develop your understanding of current global and local health challenges, the direct impact on your practice, and discover emerging medicines
  • Career development and progression - Maximise your potential to develop and progress in your career and explore alternative, new and emerging career opportunities
  • Learning zone - Experience practical, expert-led workshops, take away quality advice and valuable insights to develop your skills

The RPS Annual Conference guarantees something for every pharmacist across all sectors, with valuable opportunities to develop your skills and progress in your professional development. 

Our streams have been thoughtfully designed with your career in mind, ensuring you come away more informed and able to apply your best practice. 

This year, we'll be delivering research content throughout the streams to include thought-leading and expert content. You’ll have the opportunity to build and develop your network, and engage with your peers. We will not be accepting abstracts submissions this year, and are working on a revised opportunity that we hope to bring to you in 2018.
