    ABPI Conference 2013 – registration now open

Join influential leaders across all the health sectors for our 2013 Annual Conference, entitled '360° of health', on Thursday 25 April at Westminster Bridge Park Plaza, London.

ABPI Chief Executive Stephen Whitehead

Patients and their families want to get the best possible treatments and care on the NHS. The pharmaceutical industry wants to ensure its innovative medicines are used quickly and effectively in order to make an acceptable return on its investments so that it can fund future research and development on the next generation of medicines. NHS leaders are under pressure to make efficiency savings. More effective use of innovative medicines can help deliver these savings.

Our conference will bring together senior presenters and panellists and key stakeholders from the new NHS architecture to understand how we can work together even more effectively on our shared objectives by moving partnership working to a new level.

Topics include:

  • Defining and living value in the new NHS
  • Working with the new NHS
  • Understanding quality and standards
  • Making sense of the local agenda
  • Innovation for Health and Wealth  do devolved nations have the edge?
