Venue & Travel

Conference Facilities Entrance BioHub Reception

The usual venue for our events is Birmingham Research Park, B15 2SQ.  Link to Google map.  Please sign in at the BioHub Reception, then proceed to the entrance to the Conference facilities. Some parking places may be available but are not guaranteed.  If you do manage to park at the Research Park, you must give your car registration number to BioHub Reception or you may be ticketed by the car park company.  If not, the University Pritchatts Road pay & display car park - satnav B15 2QU - is two minutes walk away.   We recommend that you travel by train, change at New Street Station for the Longbridge or Redditch service and travel two stops to University Station which is five minutes walk from the venue.


Costs

The table below shows the charges for the four individual meetings in 2017 and will apply for 2018 as wellThese fees are designed to encourage online or BACS payments by individuals well in advance (with employer re-imbursement) and discourage late payments by employers.  If these arrangements cause you difficulties, please contact us and we will try to help.

The same fees will apply in 2018!

 

Multiple Meeting Registration Discounts (MMRD)

We are once again providing a substantial benefit for fully paid up AQMLM members paying online or by BACS, whereby up to four persons at the same institution will be able to register for up to four meetings during 2018 - up to 16 places altogether for an average cost of £35.00.  The discounts are shown in the table below:

The same discount structure will apply in 2018!

To apply for this discount system, please sign into your account and then go here, read the requirements carefully and submit the form.  (The form response fields will only be visible if you are signed in and are a fully paid up AQMLM member.)  We will process the application and contact the applicant by email with instructions for payment.   

Account holder full membership upgrades

All account holder non-members attending our events are upgraded to full member at no extra cost for the remainder of the subscription year.  If the event is after 1st July, membership is extended for the whole of the following subscription year.

Dates & proposed topics for events in 2018

Revised Programme (2nd May 2018): 

We are bringing the Audit event forward to September and dividing it into two sessions as indicated below.  Attendees will be invited to register for both.  The "Change and Risk Management" Workshop is now moved to the December date.  Those who have registered for four meetings under the MMRD system, may attend all of the following events. 

Workshop  Wednesday  13th June 2018             "Challenge of Multi-Site Quality Management"

Seminar     Tuesday        11th September 2018   "Audit Theory"

Workshop  Friday           12th October 2018        "Audit Practice"

Next Events

"Audit Theory" Seminar  Tuesday 11th September 2018

"Audit Practice" Workshop Friday 12th October 2018

  • These two events are a 'matched pair' in that we expect and encourage people to attend both in order to gain the most benefit from them
  • We will be facilitating this by offering a discount to fully paid-up AQMLM members for a double booking.  Details of these arrangements will be made available shortly
  • We strongly recommend that those wishing to attend these events put in requests to their training officers and/or managers for study leave and funding as soon as possible
  • We emphasise that it will be much cheaper for employing authorities to allow attendees to book online and claim reimbursement, as our fees will be much higher if they do not allow this and insist on purchase orders and invoicing

  • Definitions & requirements of the ISO Standards
  • UKAS perspective & requirements
  • Types of Audit
  • Audit schedule
  • Audit competency
  • Audit quality - depth & detail
  • Audit tools

Workshop Programme - Proposed Activities

  • Attendees will work in small groups on audits where they can use the techniques and knowedge gained from the Theory Seminar
  • Where possible, 'real-life' examples will be used.  Attendees will be encouraged to submit suggestions in advance of the event 

Early Registration for the combined Audit events is now open!  (20.07.18)
