Stethoscope and EKG

Business Quarter’s latest edition has recently hit the streets with an issue celebrating the vibrant healthcare and life sciences sector in the West Midlands.

Supported by the West Midlands Academic Health Science Network, the special issue features interviews with key figures from the sector including the chief executive of Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, Sarah-Jane Marsh and Professor Subrata Ghosh, director of Birmingham’s Institute of Translational Medicine. Other interviewees include the clinical director of the West Midlands Genomic Medicine Centre (whose lead organisation is University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust), Professor Dion Morton.

Introducing the issue, Editor Ian Halstead explains: “Collaboration is very much the theme of the 2018 BQ2 on healthcare and life sciences in the West Midlands.

“From the complexities of the West Midlands Growth Company’s new structure to start-up ventures in digital health, business models built around partnerships are rightly in vogue. Not least at the West Midlands Academic Health Science Network, as it works with providers, commissioning bodies and local authorities to drive the regional integration of care services.”
