BIVDA Press Comment - Doris-Ann Williams welcomes Sajid Javid to his new position at DHSC

Please see below a quote from Doris-Ann Williams, CEO of BIVDA, welcoming the new Secretary of State for Health and Social Care to his position.

 

“On behalf of BIVDA, I am delighted to welcome Mr Javid to his new position of Secretary of State for Health.

 

We look forward to building on our strong working relationship with his Department as we emerge from the pandemic and aim to build a stronger diagnostic capacity in the NHS over the coming months. In-vitro diagnostics (IVDS) will be central to clearing the backlog in undiagnosed illness that has built up during the last year, and I look forward to discussing these issues with the new Secretary of State at the earliest opportunity.”
