Background Information

MediConf UK provides a high-quality Medical Education Programme for GPs and Practice Nurses throughout the UK. It has been established since 2007 and over the past 15 years we have held over 1500 events with over 150,000 attendees. Our events are usually free or heavily subsidized by the Pharmaceutical Industry in accordance with ABPI Ethical Guidelines. The GPs and Practice Nurses find the Educational Events valuable and are provided with certificates which are used in their Appraisal Portfolios as evidence of Continuing Professional Development.

Before Covid, all our events were face to face only. During the Covid Pandemic, MediConf had to adapt as a business and started to run online CPD Courses for GPs and for Nurses/other Healthcare professionals. We use the Zoom Webinar Platform to provide these CPD Updates.

As Covid becomes endemic and we learn to live with the disease as part of our lives, we will continue to offer CPD Update training courses in whatever format that is required by our members. This may be face-to-face or online CPD courses.

The Events
Our events are usually Webinars, held on a Wednesday evening or Saturday morning. Attendance is high with around 100 to 500 delegates at most Webinars. 

Our Speakers
Speakers tend to be Consultants/Clinical Nurse Specialists or GPSI’s. They enjoy teaching and can communicate well to Primary Health Care Professionals in a clear and practical way. As these events are attended by Generalists’ rather than Specialists, it is important to keep the presentations relevant to General Practice and deal with practical day to day management problems rather than highly specialized aspects of clinical practice, of more relevance to Secondary Care Clinicians.

The Presentations
The presentations are usually around 90 mins in duration. This is usually in 2 sessions of 45 minutes with a break in the middle. We have a sponsored session midway to subsidize the cost of the webinar to delegates. The Zoom Platform does allow some interactivity with:

  • Question and Answers hosted by a text feed ongoing through the event.
  • Clinical Quizzes in the form of online Zoom Polls.

The emphasis is always on making the topics relevant to everyday Primary Care.

What are the Benefits of Speaking for MediConf?

  • A speaker’s fee
  • Get feedback and encourage dialogue from Primary Care on common areas of difficulty
