If you have made an online purchase with us previously, please login with the details you used originally. However if not you will need to create an account. Please enter any voucher codes when the applicable box appears at point of checkout.
For those intending to enrol on to an Observership or Medical Elective, there are suitability checks that need to be done in advance. At this point you will be required to contact the PGME centre on the details provided to discuss this. For attendance on all courses, your place will only be confirmed upon receipt of full payment. Where an organisation such as a hospital trust are paying on behalf of an individual(s) using the invoice payment option, bookings must be made at least 30 days so that payment is received before commencement of the course.
Booking for multiple delegates
Where you are booking courses for multiple delegates, add the desired number of places to your cart and proceed through the normal checkout procedure as outlined above. To complete a purchase for multiple delegates you must then log on to the site and allocate these to individuals. If this is not done then the booking process will not have been completed and delegates will not be able to attend the course.
Once you have allocated your places, delegates will receive joining instructions via email. Delegates do not need to set up their own accounts on our website, but they must fulfil any eligibility criteria for the relevant course. If a delegate is no longer able to attend, it may be possible to send an alternative person in their place but approval should first be sought from the administrative lead for the course. If no substitute is sent, the normal refund policy will apply.

Moorfields incurs expenses for receipt of online payments. As such, Moorfields may retain a proportion of any fees paid in order to cover these costs should you wish to cancel your order; this is explained in more detail below. All refunds, regardless of cancellation date, can only be given after the course has taken place. We aim to do this within 5 working days of course completion.
Please note: you cannot attend or book a course with us if there is an outstanding debt to the trust.
Cancellations must be made by email and will not be accepted by any other method. Upon receipt of notification of cancellation we will send a confirmation email. If you do not receive this confirmation, please contact us again. No refund will be made for non-attendance of courses without prior notice of cancellation.

Where you notify us of cancellation with at least 20 days’ notice we will return 80% of the course fee to you.
If you give us fewer than 20 days’ notice of cancellation, we will not be able to issue a refund and your payment will be retained in full. Some courses may be able to accept named substitutes within this period, please contact the relevant course administrator to discuss this.
In the event of cancellation of a training event by Moorfields, we will endeavour to give all participants two weeks’ notice; however this may not always be possible.
