External Affairs Update

The BIVDA team has continued our engagement with Ministers and Parliamentarians since their return last week, with every MP with a BIVDA member in their constituency soon to be receiving a letter outlining the benefits of the sector to their local economy. 

On the back of this communication with MPs we are looking to organise an introductory roundtable for interested parliamentarians to introduce the in-vitro diagnostics sector and the policy issues we face in 2020 including Brexit, uptake, R&D funding and NHS awareness. If you would be interested in participating in this roundtable, which are we provisionally looking at for March or early April, do let us know and we will keep you updated. 

With Brexit approaching, we are also hoping to discuss the issues of alignment and post-Brexit arrangements with the Prime Minister’s team towards the end of the month. 

Now he is settled into his new role, External Affairs Manager Jon is getting out and about to meet stakeholders – if you have a particular issue you’d like to highlight, please feel free to contact him at jonh@bivda.org.uk
