Annual pharmacy sector update returns for 2018
An eagerly-anticipated event which offers insight for professionals working within the pharmacy sector is returning again for 2018.
The North East Pharmacy Sector Update has become an annual event on the strength of its popularity, and attracts guests from across the region to hear updates and market analysis from some of the leading names in the industry.
The event, organised jointly by Sintons, Lloyds Bank and RMT, will this year have Peter Cattee, CEO of PCT Healthcare, as its keynote speaker, who will discuss pharmacy sector funding issues. Tony Evans and Chris Vowles from Christie & Co return as speakers for another year, and will offer an update on the situation regarding pharmacy sales and acquisitions.
The complimentary seminar will be held at St James’ Park on Thursday, October 25, from 6pm to 8.30pm. A buffet and refreshments will be provided, and a Q&A with the guest speakers plus representatives from the organisers will follow the main presentations.
Christopher Welch, Partner and Head of Sintons’ nationally-recognised specialist pharmacy team, said: “This event has grown over the course of the past few years into a must-attend for professionals working in any capacity within the pharmacy sector.
“Again we have a fantastic array of speakers, each of whom can offer a unique insight into what is a very specialist sector and is served by only a few leading names within it. Sintons, Lloyds and RMT are all rightly recognised as highly respected names within this field, and this is strengthened even further by the additional insight from Peter Cattee and from Christie & Co.
“This event promises to be another very successful evening and we look forward to again hosting a major occasion within the pharmacy sector calendar.”
