Healthcare Professionals Congress Sponsorship

Pfizer UK is proud to support the continuing medical education of Healthcare Professionals (HCPs) working within the UK to assist in improving patient care.


To this end Pfizer sets aside a defined amount of funds each year to support individual HCPs with registration fees for specific third party meetings.

As an ethical pharmaceutical company, Pfizer seeks to act with integrity and in compliance with all UK regulatory procedures and policies at all times. Therefore all sponsorship is awarded in a transparent and fair process and on a first come first served basis.

When HCPs are supported with funding to attend 3rd party meetings, Pfizer must not, nor does Pfizer wish to, receive anything in return. The funding is not offered as an inducement to prescribe, supply, administer, recommend, buy or sell a Pfizer medicine. The offer of the funding is not linked to any promotional activity, for example the requirement to attend a promotional satellite symposium at the 3rd party meeting.

The following criteria must be met in order for a HCP to be selected for sponsorship:

  1. The HCP has demonstrated a strong interest in the therapeutic area; and/or
  2. The HCP has a defined health need in their patient population relevant to the meeting; and/or
  3. The HCP has expressed a desire to improve services and clinical effectiveness in the relevant area.

There must be a clear link between the knowledge gained through attending the meeting, and the direct application to improving clinical practice and patient care. Funding cannot be provided for a predominantly personal benefit which would enhance the recipient’s CV.

Pfizer Support for meetings

Pfizer will provide support for registration fees only, up to a maximum of £750, for one meeting per individual calendar year. Funding will be provided as a reimbursement and will be made upon receipt of a fully signed offer letter, a clear original receipt, and account details. You will have a maximum of 30 days from the date of the congress to make a claim for your reimbursement.

Sponsorship from Pfizer does not cover expenses for:

  • Travel or accommodation
  • Food and drink
  • Social events
  • Other claims which are not registration fees, for example Membership fee’s

By limiting the funding available to each individual HCP we hope to maximise the number of HCPs that are able to access this resource.

In order to apply for sponsorship from Pfizer you will need to complete the below online application, following which a Pfizer colleague will be in touch.
