Why should you choose this course?

The NHS is a complex organisation that faces increasing demand for services along with constrained funding. The belief that technology can contribute to quality outcomes and efficiency gains is embedded within NHS policy propositions and commitments, but this does not make the NHS market for technology easy to navigate.

This course provides an introduction to the organisation of the NHS, its governance and policy drivers, with a specific focus on how technology is organised in the NHS, background trends and priorities, as well as procurement processes.

Who should attend?

This course is suitable for anyone new to the health technology sector or seeking to refresh and update their understanding. It is particularly relevant to sales, marketing and business development managers who need to strengthen their understanding of how the service is organised and uses technology.

What is the course outcome?

This engaging and informative workshop will provide delegates with a good understanding of the NHS. Participants will gain knowledge that will enable them to target and identify policy areas and demand opportunities relevant to their own organisation.
