Event description


PrescQIPP Annual Event and Innovation Awards 2018 - A new venue and more places for you!

Wednesday 17 October 2018, 09.00-16.00, De Vere East Midlands Conference Centre

Our sixth annual event is moving to the De Vere East Midlands Conference Centre so we can welcome more of your PrescQIPP community colleagues than ever before.

As always the day will be packed with great speakers, relevant and practical content, plenty of networking, and not to forget sharing and good practice in spades with the Innovation Awards.

This year we have increased the number of places officially allocated for each commissioning area to three, so don't only get the date in your diaries, get clicking on the link and grab your three places until 29 June 2018. After 29 June available places per CCG will be reduced to two spots again. Any remaining places will, as always, be released closer to the date, so if colleagues have beaten you to it our event manager Kathi will be in touch to add you to the waiting list.

As well as booking your place don't forget to get your entries ready and remind all your NHS colleagues about the Innovation Awards, which also open today. Find out more here:

Final details including the full event programme, travel information, driving directions and a map will be sent out in early October, but in the meantime, please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have at


There are a limited number of subsidised rooms available at the De Vere Orchard Hotel just opposite the Conference Centre that will be offered to attendees with the longest, or most awkward journeys (generally journeys over three hours). Please note, there are no subsidised bedrooms available anymore and the allocations have been confirmed.

Should you wish to have a room to join other attendees and the PrescQIPP team for informal networking the evening before, but don't live that far away please let Kathi know and she can book you a full price room.
