Christmas is around the corner but there is still lots keeping us busy this month. I chaired a panel on digital technologies at the Patient First conference, spoke at the opening of Cocoon Networks about digitising the NHS, and I was at the launch of Shire’s new London office this week speaking about the importance of investment into the golden triangle.
It was great to see support from the Health Minister, Jeremy Hunt, this month as he spoke in The Telegraph about the remarkable strength of the UK’s life sciences sector, and there was a comment piece in The Times about investment into innovation at university spin-outs from Cambridge, Oxford and London.
We are now looking forward to events in early 2017 including the Future of Healthcare Investor Forum in January and the Biomedical Research Centre showcase in February. We moved into our new offices at Cocoon Networks yesterday and our telephone number is now 0203 179 8100.
Finally, I wish you all a restful Christmas break and I hope to see many of you next year as we continue to support, grow and promote life sciences across London and the greater south east.
