Or do you work at a national level with responsibility for bringing a new health technology to the NHS in England? This July, Global Whispers and NHS Whispers come together, to bring you an overarching view of what it takes to access the NHS with a medtech of pharmaceutical innovation.

On Thursday 11th July, Robert Hull (Senior Consultant – NHS Insight & Interaction) will be joined by Dr Faris Al-Ramadani who will share his experience of introducing new technologies to the NHS from both sides of the fence: as a PCN Clinical Director and GP Partner, and as a HealthTech and Venture Capital VC Consultant. Register now to join us live at 2.00pm (BST) / 9.00am (EDT) / 3.00pm (CEST) or to listen to the recoding later!

The NHS in England is complex and ever changing. Recent years have seen the introduction of new structures, new decision-makers and new priorities. If you’ve fallen out of the loop of what’s happening with the NHS, this webinar is here to help.

After de-ciphering some of the new(er) NHS terminologies and structures, Rob and Faris will discuss:

  • The key steps for introducing a new health technology to the NHS
  • Who to speak to, when and where
  • What to include in your value proposition to appeal to NHS decision-makers
  • How to best meet key stakeholders’ needs
  • The challenges of bringing a new technology to the NHS in England

This webinar is for you, if you:

  • Work in a global role in an international Medical Devices or Pharmaceutical company and are keen to understand the challenges faced by your UK affiliates
  • Are focused on the UK market and are looking to understand more about routes into the NHS
  • Are launching in the UK for the first time

We hope this will prompt conversations between global and local teams. Indeed, we invite our usual NHS Whispers attendees to bring along Global colleagues to join the conversation. Furthermore, we are offering Global and Local teams the opportunity to book a de-brief session, facilitated by our experts, to explore the implications for global / affiliate collaboration and launch.
