Accreditation refers both to the accreditation of educational programmes by an accreditation body/ authority.
Millbrook submits educational programmes to a number of accrediting bodies (where applicable) including:
The Royal College of Physicians
The Royal College of Physicians approves external CPD events for post-training physicians. External events are defined as educational events which are targeted towards physicians from multiple hospitals and trusts. Credits are given for learning activities with others, outside the normal place of employment, such as attending conferences and study days.

Millbrook adheres to be The Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI) Code of Practice and supports the Eucomed Guidelines on Interactions with Healthcare Professionals (EthicalMedTech).
Ethical Med Tech: Conference Vetting System
The Conference Vetting System is a unique initiative in the healthcare industry. Launched beginning of 2012, this independently managed system reviews the compliance of third-party educational conferences with the Eucomed Code of Ethical Business Practice (the “Code”) to determine the appropriateness for companies which are members of Eucomed and members of the national associations affiliated with Eucomed to sponsor Healthcare Professionals to participate in such conferences.
The Conference Vetting System is a centralised decision-making system that encourages transparency and consistency in medical conferences and alleviates the complex administrative burden previously faced by Eucomed members, who were constrained to make their own determinations on whether or not a conference is compliant with the Code.
