MediConf UK is one of the fastest growing primary care education providers in the UK. It was formed in 2007 following the success of its predecessor Fylde MedEd which provided GP education on the Fylde Coast from 1997. We are not part of a CCG or a charity, but a private organisation.
To enable us to keep our costs to a minimum and still offer top quality education either FREE of charge or heavily discounted, it is necessary to provide sponsorship by way of a small exhibition during break times at all our events.
Regular Venues Include
Blackpool, Manchester, Cumbria, Liverpool, Leeds, Birmingham, Belfast, Cardiff, Chester, Glasgow, Kegworth, East Midlands, London, Middlesbrough, Milton Keynes, Norwich, Plymouth, Southampton, Preston, Sheffield,
All courses which are advertised as free of charge, are only free to Practicing GPs (inc locums and salaried GPs) and Practice Nurses attached to a surgery. Free courses are only available to Health Professionals who Practice within the area that course is being held. If you are a locum GP, please provide a surgery address from one of the surgeries you locum at – we do NOT accept home addresses.
On rare occasions we may have to change a speaker. If a speaker cancels due to unforseen circumstances, we will endeavour to replace the speaker and run the same course. However the course may have minor differences to the original agenda. If we cannot find a replacement you will all be notified and if we cannot re-run the event in the same year, full refunds will be issued. Where changes are made, all delegates booked onto the course are informed via email.

Please be aware that our courses are either FREE or heavily subsidised due assisted sponsorship.
