Event Details

The SASA Private Practice Business Unit's (PPBU) mission is to promote safe, professional, quality patient care through innovation, collaboration and leadership, and to ensure sustainability and value within the healthcare sector. Over the past years, SASA's PPBU has built up volumes of useful information and guidelines to equip members to manage private practice and navigate the diverse and dynamic challenges related to this.

You are invited to join us on the 22 July 2023 for our face to face workshop at The Auditorium, Workshop 17, Sandton, where we will cover topics such as how to run a private practice, different practice structures, coding, tax and VAT, medical insurance, managing scheme audits and consenting patients.
