The event will include an update on the Prime Ministers Challenge Fund investment in 4 x 8-8 clinics, new tech  ways of getting a GP appointment, an update from a team of people with learning disabilities visiting pharmacies and an opportunity to have a say in the Lambeth DataNet database of anonymised health data from 340,000 patients registered at GPs in Lambeth.
