Healthcare Professionals Congress Sponsorship

HCP 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 manner and on a first come first served basis.

When HCPs are supported with registration fees to attend third party meetings, Pfizer must not, nor does Pfizer wish to, receive anything in return. The support is not offered as an inducement to prescribe, supply, administer, recommend, buy or sell a Pfizer medicine. The offer of support is not linked to any promotional activity, for example the requirement to attend a promotional satellite symposium at the third 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 only enhance the recipient’s CV.
