The Health Network North is excited to be launching a brand-new programme of free webinars – “Unlocking barriers to accessing the NHS” – to help North East SMEs engage more effectively with the NHS.
The aim of the event is to provide North East SMEs with an overview of Intellectual Property, its benefits, and common pitfalls and misconceptions.
