This will involve listening to and understanding the problems and challenges faced by those working to improve the quality of healthcare.

In addition to a solid medical background, we’re looking for a confident, credible presenter with a genuine interest in transforming healthcare. Commercial awareness, an insight into this sector and strong relationship-building and follow-through skills are a must. If you have experience in the use of our product range it would be regarded as a significant advantage.
