Is it possible to book my course place on-line?

Unfortunately, as NEPSEC is hosted within two host hospital Trusts it is not yet possible to book a course place on-line.  For most of our courses you can download our application form from the website.  Once you complete this, you can return it to us by post to the address on the application form or alternatively scan it and send it by email to our generic email account sht-tr.nepsec@nhs.net

 

I don’t have a cheque book, is it possible to pay for my course by card or electronic bank transfer?

There are many different ways you or a third party such as your employer may choose to pay for your course, including card and electronic payments.  However, in order to allow for an appropriate audit trail and ensure the moneys make their way to the correct hospital trust budget, we need to raise an invoice first.   The options for making a payment can be found at the bottom of the invoice.  Many employers will not pay an invoice without having raised an official purchase order first, so please ensure you quote this on your application form.  However, it is important to know that we can raise invoices to individuals and charitable accounts too.  It is always best to accompany your application form with full invoicing address details and written confirmation accepting responsibility for paying the course fees if you do not have an official purchase order number.

 

My employer does not use purchase order numbers, is it still possible to receive an invoice for my course fee?

Yes, if individuals or other third parties including employers do not use purchase orders your application should simply be accompanied by full invoicing address and written confirmation accepting the responsibility for paying the course fees.

 

I intend to pay by cheque, but when will it be cashed?

We try not to cash cheques until closer to the date of the course.   This is to prevent the need for a refunds process if you decide to cancel your place.  Please see our course applications terms and conditions document.  As a general rule of thumb, cheques are processed for payment and sent to the Cashier’s Department approximately 4 weeks prior to the course.

 

I intend to pay by invoice, but when will I receive an invoice?

We try not to raise invoices until closer to the date of the course.  This is to prevent the need for a credit/reimbursement process if you decide to cancel your place.  Please see our course applications terms and conditions document.  As a general rule of thumb, the invoicing process happens between 2 weeks prior and up to 2 weeks after the event.

 

My employer has not made arrangements to provide a purchase order, can I still book my place and attend the course?

Some employers will not pay an invoice without having raised an official purchase order first.  Many of our course places are only allocated on a first-come, first-served basis with completed application and payment or full payment details.  However, please do check with our Administration Team with regard to late bookings and options for payment.  Sometimes an e-mail from your line-manager explaining the situation will enable a suitable action plan to be put in place that will allow us to take your booking and you to attend.
