The PHSS QP Forum was established in 2011 by a group of Welsh QPs who wanted a local network and a local forum. What was missing locally was the ability to network, keep up to date and complete relevant CPD. This Forum has expanded to a small annual conference open to all. Each year a conference is held on the first Thursday in November.

The scope is wide and covers new medicinal products, new technology, new regulations, guidance and standards. We have a mixture of speakers from the pharmaceutical industry, suppliers to the industry and academia. The annual conference is geared to practical advice, review of new and current regulatory guidance and industry/research/hospital speakers talking through their own processes. Hopefully it covers some areas of required CPD. We generate a conference environment favourable to frank and confidential discussions on Quality Systems and QA/QP responsibilities.The delegates are from manufacturing, research and development, service industries and hospital delegates and we aim to be a wide based Pharmaceutical compliance forum.
