The PrescQIPP Annual Event and Innovation Awards 2018

Now entering its sixth year, the PrescQIPP Annual Event and Innovation Awards has become a highlight in the comissioning calendar, providing a fantastic opportunity get together, have fun and celebrate the very best of our community.

The PrescQIPP Annual Event

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

Wednesday 17 October 2018, 09.00-16.00, Nottingham

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 15 June 2018. After 15 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

The PrescQIPP Innovation Awards

Submission deadline: 10th August 2018


Why you should enter the awards

  • Recognition and profile for your team among hundreds of peers across the UK 
  • Chance to adorn your desk and win admiration of colleagues with a much coveted PrescQIPP award
  • Useful chance to review and define the impact of your work
  • And most importantly, a great opportunity to highlight and share good practice for the benefit of patients

But don't just take our word for it. Here's what last year's Gold award winner Sundus Jawad from NHS East Berkshire CCG said:

"We were absolutely delighted and honoured to win the PrescQIPP Gold Innovation Award in 2017. The PrescQIPP innovation awards are well recognised in the world of medicine optimisation and to win as a result of the votes from our fellow medicines optimisation colleagues was extra special. It has raised the profile of the work we do as a medicines optimisation team within our own CCG but also among other local organisations. Winning the awards has raised the profile of our project and has allowed us to share it at national level."

You’re all winners to us but you have to be in it to win it, so now is the time to check out the categories, get together with your team and tell us all about the great work you're doing.

Remember - whether or not you win on the day, you'll still be contributing to a national movement to share and learn from each other, build networks and work together to deliver real change in care for patients.
