Roundtable discussion on how the NHS and the Department for International Trade work together

15 Jun 2021
FZ - International

This roundtable session will look to establish how we can strengthen the relationships between NHS exporters and teams in the Department for International Trade (DIT) teams, through the NHS relationship management function. This is part of the ongoing work of HealthCare UK and builds into more bespoke packages of work with the same intended outcome (upskilling webinars).

The session will explain why the current system operates in the way that it does and will demonstrate the value that the relationship management process brings. It will provide further understanding for those interested in exporting and looking to learn how it works. The session will also discuss areas where the system could be developed further.

This session is delivered in partnership with Healthcare UK.

This session forms part of the International feature zone that is supported by Healthcare UK.
