N.A.P.P. 2015 Annual Conference


Each year the Association holds a National Conference that includes the Annual General Meeting of
the Association. This takes place in a different part of the UK each year. N.A.P.P.
Annual Conferences are ideal for established PPGs who want to share ideas, and for newly
formed PPGs who want to learn from more experienced Groups.
They are also helpful for practices who are thinking of getting started with a PPG.
