Our annual event returns to the Marriott in Leicester this October and we are really looking forward to seeing you all again. After stellar feedback on last year’s event, we’re going to keep to the same model of holding a positive, pragmatic day with loads of sharing, discussion and some great ideas to take home with you.
We are very pleased to welcome back Peter Rowe, who is surely now the official PrescQIPP event chairman, for a day of learning, sharing and celebrating great work from across the country. More information about speakers and the agenda to follow in the coming weeks.
Between now and the 18th September, there are two reserved slots for each subscribed area. Any remaining additional slots will be released closer to the date, with our brilliant event organisers, Emily and Alistair at Bright taking names for waiting lists.
This year’s Innovation Awards
The Innovation Awards will once again be at the heart of the event, with subscribers and NHS staff contributing a substantial slice of the content on the day.
The award categories have now been finalised and all the relevant information can be found here: https://www.prescqipp.info/annual-event-and-innovation-awards-2016/engage/the-prescqipp-innovation-awards-2016
Don’t forget to circulate the award information to your colleagues - entry is open to all NHS organisations, not just PrescQIPP subscribers.
Rooms are being held at the Marriott hotel for those of you who would like to stay the night before and join the team and other colleagues for an informal get together.
There are a limited number of subsidised rooms available and they will be offered to those with the longest, or most awkward journeys. You can express your interest in a hotel room as part of registering your place. Bedroom allocations will be confirmed by Friday 16th September.
Trains: The nearest mainline train station is Leicester at 5km. A taxi from the station to the Leicester Marriott Hotel is approximately £13 each way.
Automobiles: The hotel is located just off the M1. The hotel website has a useful mapping tool: http://www.marriott.com/hotels/maps/travel/emalm-leicester-marriott-hotel/. Complimentary parking has been arranged at the hotel. Free exit tickets will be available from the registration desk.
That’s it for now! More details will be sent out nearer the event (including full event details, travel information, driving directions and maps) but please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
