About the Macmillan Primary Care Conference

The two day conference for Macmillan's primary care community (including Macmillan GPs and a growing number of Practice Nurses) includes key sessions from a range of influential speakers, interactive workshops, delegate showcases and the opportunity for our primary care community to network and share ideas with colleagues from across the UK.

The theme of this year's conference is reflective of our developing work with Consultant Advisers with a focus on integrated working between primary and secondary care professionals. Many are identifying opportunities to work collaboratively in developing shared objectives across boundaries and services in order to provide the best outcome for people affected by cancer.

Venue location:

Hilton London Gatwick Airport, South Terminal, Gatwick Airport, Gatwick, RH6 0LL
