UK Market Access Webinar: The evolving NHS: How can pharma and medtech support the NHS in 2022? - End of year Panel discussion

Pharma and Medtech professionals put questions to our panel of NHS associates as we reflected on the operational, structural, and clinical challenges the NHS has faced in 2021 and how Pharma and Medtech can best support the NHS in 2022, in our live webinar on Friday 10th December 2021.

In our December #WhispersWordsofWisdom webinar, Tom Clarke (Director, Mtech Access) put your questions to some of Mtech Access’s closest and most insightful friends:

  • Liz Cross (Advanced Nurse Practitioner, Attenborough Surgery, Watford) our Primary Care and Clinical expert
  • Ewan Maule (Interim Chief Pharmacist, North East and North Cumbria ICS) our System and Medicines expert

In this special end of the year panel discussion, we reflected on the changes, challenges and innovations seen across the NHS in 2021. We explored our panellists’ expectations for 2022 and how they hope the NHS will evolve, learn lessons from 2021 and look to collaborate with industry in the future.
