The increasing opportunities for UK businesses to contribute in the global healthcare market will be among the topics being discussed at a high profile seminar on 19 March 2015.

The Exporting Healthcare conference will bring together important representatives from government, the NHS, academia, charities and providers to debate issues connected with health around the world.

The conference will tackle a range of topics. It will not only be forum for healthcare businesses and organisations to put the role of the UK in global healthcare under the spotlight, but they will also share information on what opportunities and challenges lie ahead in an international context.

George Freeman MP, Minister for Life Sciences, will open the conference with a keynote address on developing healthcare solutions for international partners.

Healthcare UK is supporting the event which is being organised by Westminster Briefing.

Managing Director of Healthcare UK, Howard Lyons, said:

Building on the success stories which exemplify the UK’s contribution to global health – from support for Ebola prevention to training healthcare professionals overseas – we need to forge even stronger ties between the wide range of British organisations at the heart of international activity.

In this context, Healthcare UK is delighted to be supporting the Exporting Healthcare conference, which will consider the UK’s role in global health and the extent to which we can develop and refine domestic partnerships in order to collaborate with countries across the world.

The participation of top health professionals in the event will be crucial to its success. This debate is about bringing together representatives from across the NHS, private, government and third sectors.
