2024 Programme - What to Expect

Our 2024 Conference Programme is still in the works...


2024 so far has been a year of change – we’ve seen the launch of Pharmacy First, long awaited announcements on PGDs, hub and spoke, and new contract negotiations, but also of uncertainty – the surprise timing of the general election has thrown timelines into doubt, and teams are waiting to see what the outcome means for the future of community pharmacy.

While the team at the Pharmacy Show can’t predict the future, what we can do is bring together the right people to unpick and make sense of what the policy landscape means for you, and also compile a line up of trailblazers and innovators to inspire you.

While the conference programme is being developed and finalised, see below for a sneak preview of just some of the conversations and inspiration you can expect this year.
