These are intended to assist with travel and accommodation requirements to attend the conference.

Hospital/Clinic training departments

Apply to your training department in the first instance.

Charities attached to hospitals/clinics

If a charity is attached to your hospital/clinic, check if they fund attendance to educational events and apply to them.

Pharmaceutical funding

Funding for educational conferences can be obtained via your pharmaceutical representative. Each company has a different application procedure, so do liaise with your representative on how to apply for funding.

Once you have received confirmation that your pharmaceutical representative will be able to fund all or part of your registration fee, we can accept payment through all the payment methods listed on our how-to-pay page.

Pharmaceutical companies cannot fund delegates to attend social events (i.e. the conference dinner).
