The NHS is complex, constantly changing and difficult to understand – all of which prevent real-world challenges for anyone providing it with a product or service.


This webex will explain the NHS in plain terms, describing the organisations that make up the system, how they work together, are funded, what they are meant to achieve, what is changing and what this means for industry.


This webex is ideal for anyone wanting to better understand the NHS in England, particularly those:


  • In pharma, med-tech and companies providing a product or service to the NHS, needing to understand their evolving marketplace
  • In NHS liaison and market access teams, responsible for understanding and communicating change
  • Senior managers and board members who require a high-level NHS overview
  • Newly working with the NHS, in need of a one-stop primer
