Welcome to the December Issue of ghp Magazine.
As 2015 draws to a close Nooman Haque, Director of Healthcare & Life Sciences for the Silicon Valley Bank UK Branch talks us through the prevalent trends in the healthcare sector over the past year.
This issue’s foreword comes from Northern Ireland’s Health Minister, Simon Hamilton, who provides us with an insight into his department’s latest initiative, Making Life Better.
Guy’s and St Thomas’ infrastructure department also offers outsourced services to firms and other NHS trusts. We speak to Tracy Cheung, Head of Marketing and Engagement, and Anne-Marie Watts, Head of Sterile Services, to gain a fascinating insight into the firm and its work.
Mark Britnell talks us through his innovative new book, In Search of a Perfect Health System, which offers a global analysis of healthcare services from around the world and the positive and negative aspects of each.
In this issue we also explore a number of exciting new strategies from Public Health England, which could change the face of the UK health service in the long run.
We hope you enjoy this issue.
