Access to our exclusive resources is for specific groups of students, users, subscribers and members.

In this article Katie Collin, chair of the Healthcare Community, reflects on a successful 2023 and outlines the Community plans for 2024.

Last year the Healthcare Community continued to provide members with content which reflected the trends of the industry and needs of members. This included topics such as social care, VAT on training and updates relating to GP and dental practices.

We also explored topics we had previously not covered including UK Life Sciences and its ecosystem across academia, government, the NHS and it’s investors.

Katie Collin commented “I’m really pleased with the content that the Healthcare Community were able to produce for its members in 2023. I would like to thank members of the advisory group for their time, expertise, and ongoing help in putting together our events.

This year the Healthcare Community is looking to expand the scope of topics and content that it produces, and the advisory group is already hard at work putting the conference together, suggesting topics for webinars and drafting articles for you. We’re very keen to get this out to you as soon as we can.”

What’s on the horizon for 2024?
