MACP Delegate Terms & Conditions

By booking on an MACP course, lecture or conference ("Course") you are entering into an agreement with the Musculoskeletal Association of Chartered Physiotherapists, PO Box 4940, Slough, Berks, SL1 0JW ("MACP") on the terms and conditions contained in the applicable booking form and as set out below ("Terms"). If you have any questions about these Terms please do not hesitate to contact us.

"Attendee" means the person named in a booking form whose place on a Course has been confirmed by MACP and whose Registration Fee has been received by MACP and who is therefore entitled to attend the stated Course. "Registration Fee" means all monies owing to MACP, the payment of which entitles an individual to attend the relevant Course. "Substitution" means any circumstance where an Attendee who has paid in full is unable to attend a Course on which they have been confirmed and arranges for another individual to attend such Course in their place, in agreement with MACP. "Venue" means the venue for the Course as indicated on the MACP website or as notified to an Attendee by MACP.

By registering for and/or attending a Course, all Attendees agree to be bound by, and comply with, these Terms. It is the Attendee's responsibility to read and understand these Terms.


  1. The Registration Fee is due at the time of booking. If you are applying for funding the Registration Fee will need to be paid at the time of booking and: (a) should be refunded by your employer or relevant NHS trust; or (b) refunded by MACP once MACP has received the Registration Fee from your employer or NHS trust. All payments must be made in pounds sterling.
