Due to the demand for sonographers to train in DVTs and carotids regionally, we would like to encourage sonographers to take an interest in this study day. The event will consist of introductory lectures followed by two demonstration sessions featuring live scanning of volunteers.

This interactive, face-to-face, workshop is ideal for students, and academics across all levels. Participants will be introduced to the epistemology that underpins IPA, discuss research questions and IPA interview/focus group schedule design, review the stages involved in analysis, and have time to work through a given data set at a level ‘beyond description’.

Communication and breaking bad news are some of the most difficult things to learn in Obstetrics. This study day features several presentations from professionals involved with different stages of the pregnancy journey (including CMW, EPA nurse, fetal medicine consultant and the bereavement midwife).


When visiting our venue, the beautiful architecture and state-of-the-art facilities are clear to anyone... but when it comes to our passion and dedication - sometimes you have to feel to believe.

Nothing makes us prouder than knowing we've delivered above and beyond all expectations. Take a look at some client feedback below.

"As a conference venue the Enterprise Centre was extremely impressive."

Hannah Gilbert, Compassionate Wellbeing


"Our meetings at the Derby Enterprise Centre are most enjoyable as nothing is ever too much trouble for the event team there. The food is excellent and imaginative, the facilities first class and the process from booking to attending on the day is always smooth."

Susan Tanner, CEO, The National Outdoor Events Association


"All the staff we spoke to were very helpful and friendly and it was a lovely day. The attendees have asked if we can have all workshops there in future, which I think is the best testimonial. Personally I appreciated the air conditioned room as I’m not a fan of hot weather.

The location is very good for access by road from the A38 and also within walking distance of the station which always makes life easier."

Kellie Channing, The National Trust
