Why Do You Charge A Fee?

We are not part of a CCG or a charity, but a private organisation. In view of this, 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. This can be in the form of a sponsored session during the interval for webinars, or by way of a small exhibition during break times at all our face-to-face events. All our sponsorship complies fully with ABPI guidance. All sponsored sessions are clearly declared as such.
