Delegate FAQs

Who organises the Congress?

CloserStill Media organises leading and award-winning healthcare conferences and exhibitions – including The Pharmacy Show, Pharmagora Plus, The Acute & General Medicine Conference, Health+Care, Digital Healthcare, Best Practice, Patient First, The Dentistry Show and The London Vet Show.

We are aware of the multiple pressures placed on the pharmacy team given NHS cuts, the increasing pressure to deliver better patient outcomes, to keep up-to-date on clinical developments, updated on new medicines and the maintenance of CPD portfolios.  So we have designed the Congress programme with these challenges in mind and to help address your general and specialist pharmacists’ needs in conjunction with the Centre for Pharmacy Post Graduate Education (CPPE), with leadership sessions from the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) and technology content in conjunction with NHS Digital.

Pharmacy professional pass 

Access to the conference is £499+VAT for one/two day conference pass. Most GPhC pharmacy professionals will see the fee waived with a unique CPC education code to enable them to attend for free – see below. Please note you can use your pass on both or either day of CPC. 

International delegates and commercial companies 

If you are an Industrial/Commercial Pharmacist,supplier to the profession, non-healthcare professional or an international healthcare professional you are not eligible for a educational code but can purchase passes for £499+VAT. Please note the price will increase on the 30 October 2020 and on-site at CPC to £699+VAT. 

Your delegate badge will give you access all areas at CPC. 

Please note, commercial companies will be invoiced £699+VAT if they attend the event using a complimentary educational code reserved for pharmacy professionals. To ensure only pharmacy professionals use this code we ask for you to sign a disclaimer agreement at the end of the registration form. 

What is an education code?

Thanks to the partnerships with Congress sponsors and exhibitors, we are able to underwrite a set number of the delegate places. Heads of departments in the UK will receive codes for their staff worth over £10,000.

Am I eligible for an education code?

If you have a GPhC number/work within the UK healthcare system you should be able to access a code through your Chief Pharmacist or Training and Education Manager.

Please note, codes for the 2020 Congress have been issued. Please speak with your Head of Department to access this code.
