WMAHSN is offering a number of unique sponsorship opportunities for its annual Economic Summit, now in its third successful year.

On 8 December 2016, the WMAHSN will host its Economic Summit at the Park Inn by Radisson in Telford, Shropshire. The event will bring industry together with NHS and local authority commissioners and providers, academia and citizens. 

This year, the summit will focus on three key streams:

  • Maximising global opportunities in the light of Brexit
  • The strategic opportunities of devolution
  • Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs).

Our speaker list includes national NHS leads as well as local key opinion leaders, with the following speakers already confirmed:

  • Mark Rogers, Chief Executive, Birmingham City Council
  • Geraldine Strathdee, former National Clinical Director for Mental Health, NHS England
  • Andy Williams, Chief Accountable Officer, Sandwell and West Birmingham Clinical Commissioning Group and Black Country STP lead

  • Linda Magee, Business Development Director, Manchester Academic Health Science Centre and Executive Director, Industry and Wealth, Greater Manchester Academic Health Science Network.

The summit will address the opportunities available to healthcare and life sciences organisations and businesses within the West Midlands in light of recent economic developments. There will be a chance to investigate some of the challenges facing the sector, and how you can overcome them to prosper. WMAHSN will discuss their growth plan and metrics for 2016/2017, as well as exploring the opportunities to create better health and wealth outcomes.

With delegate numbers expected to be around 200, our exciting and value for money sponsorship packages offer maximum exposure of your organisation and your brand to our high-calibre delegates from across the NHS, local authority and private sector healthcare landscape.
