Workshop FAQ

Will you reimburse my travel expenses?

No. While we believe education to be an appropriate use of (a small part of) members’ subscriptions, we do not believe that the majority of members would agree that reimbursement of other members’ travel expenses would be a good way to use their funds.

Is there a charge for car parking when attending a workshop?

MPS does not pay for car parking. However, the venue where the workshop is being held may charge a car parking fee to use their car park (if available). This is at the discretion of the venue so we advise you to check before you travel.

If I cancel my attendance at a workshop, will I be penalised?

Although we reserve the right to charge a cancellation fee, as per the terms and conditions you agree to when making your booking, wherever possible we try not to do this. If you give us notice or if an emergency arises (either private or patient) we will not charge you. However, we do reserve the right to charge attendees who do not contact us at all about their inability to attend (before or after the event) particularly if this happens on more than one occasion.

I have only just opened my letter; why are the workshops so full already?

Your letter may have been delayed in the post. There are limited spaces available for each workshop and because the workshops are well received they can fill within a very short time. Most people go online to make bookings and, especially over weekends, this often means that they take the spaces first.

I can't get to the venue until after the workshop has started. Can I still have my CPD/CEU/CME points?

If you believe you are going to be late, we would recommend that you register on another date. The introduction to the workshop is important for the messages later. Most colleges require proof from us that you have attended the complete workshop and may take into consideration any discrepancies between attendance-register records and time claimed.

I can't attend any of the workshops - can you send me the course materials instead?

The course materials are only an addition to the workshop and not a replacement for it. They do not contain the videos, the exercises or the speaker’s notes that are vital parts of the workshop. Therefore, we do not provide workshop material to people who do not attend.

Do I get a reduced subscription rate if I participate in MPS education?

No, not at present. MPS sets its subscription rates to reflect the risks of various groups of doctors who share similar characteristics – for example specialty groupings. Therefore, the rate you pay is set to reflect the level of potential risk. 

At the present time the main benefits to the individual practitioner of engaging with our educational programs are:

  • Enhanced risk management skills
  • Improved patient outcomes
  • Reduced likelihood of involvement with claims or complaints and the associated stress, worry and inconvenience they bring.

Can you make the course materials available online?

The course materials are only an addition to the workshop and not a replacement for it. They do not contain the videos, the exercises or the speaker’s notes that are vital parts of the workshop. Therefore, the workshop material is not available online. 

We know that it can be difficult for some members to attend workshops. This is why MPS has launched Prism, an online e-learning resource for members.

Can I just turn up to attend a workshop on the day?

No, places are limited and it is not possible for the workshop presenters to cater for members who do not book a place in advance.
