The second annual Clinical Pharmacy Congress (London ExCeL, April 26th and 27th) has been hailed a resounding success with 1,758 delegates from all parts of the country attending, making it once again the largest gathering of clinical pharmacists in the UK.
From the opening Friday address by the DoH Chief Pharmacist Keith Ridge, to the very last sessions on Saturday, the conference theatres were packed full as pharmacists and pharmacy technicians gathered to improve their clinical skills, learn leadership techniques and develop new ideas to take back and put into practice.
Ridge praised the Congress for its vital role in bringing the clinical community together. “There’s significant change taking place in the NHS at the moment and this show is the ideal place for professionals to network, interact and discuss what the future might hold. There are other conferences around, but nothing quite like this one. It’s an important event,” the Chief Pharmaceutical Officer commented.

"This forum hits all the right notes for the pharmacy industry. The sessions are well attended and the programming is perfectly pitched with the right mix of high level policy to give delegates a general overview to the more specific topics. There’s clearly a need for The Clinical Pharmacy Congress in the pharmacy industry."
Jonathan Mason, Clinical Advisor (Medicines), NHS England (London Area)
"This is an extremely useful show – I wouldn’t be here otherwise. It’s a good opportunity to talk to suppliers on the stand and look at all the equipment – you just can’t assess products properly on the internet. And the variety of speakers keeps me up to date in all areas of pharmacy."
Ed England, Chief Hospital Pharmacist, South Central Ambulance Service
