These events will provide an opportunity to hear the most up to date information to support you in making the changes required to comply with the contract changes and maximise your payments. There will be plenty of time during the events for questions, but if you have anything specific you would like covering please email Alison in advance so we can make sure one of the speakers covers it.

As an introduction to the contractor events on 30th January and 6th February we would advise all contractors to watch the recorded webinars that PSNC held over November 2016.  These are a useful resource and Alastair Buxton and Mike Dent will go into more detail on the evenings and answering your questions.
