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.
Our venues now include
Blackpool, Manchester, Cumbria, Liverpool, Leeds, Birmingham, Belfast, Brighton, Cardiff, Cheltenham, Chester, Colchester, Glasgow, Kegworth, Kent, London, Middlesbrough, Milton Keynes, Norwich, Oxford, Plymouth, Southampton, Fife, Preston, Leicester, Sheffield, Lincoln
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.
All other Health professionals' inc Health Visitors, all hospital and Clinic staff are required to pay a heavily subsidised fee of £40 + VAT(£48.00). The fee is expected prior to the course and is non-refundable.
